Shades of 1996! For over 50 years, through good times and mostly bad, I’ve rooted for three football teams: the Giants, the Jets and Rutgers.Diehard fans of the Giants or Jets might chastise me with the cri de coeur, “What kind of fan roots for both of them?!” It’s easy, I confess, because I’m totally a fair-weather fan, and it applies to all the major professional sports.
