New York Jets – Wimpy
This is a real place. I honestly could not believe that someone would name a restaurant Wimpy, but here we are. After some investigation, here’s what I learned about Wimpy.
The owner had big aspirations. He thought he was going to sell eight million hamburgers a year. He did not. The chain slowly started to fade away until the owner passed away. No one bothered to open another Wimpy in America. Because, why would they? However, Wimpy became a huge hit internationally. European markets are much nicer and don’t view Wimpy with a negative connotation.
You may find a Wimpy’s Grill near you, but it’s not the same as Wimpy in the United Kingdom. The original Wimpy is only overseas.
That brings us to the Jets. Wouldn’t they be better off overseas? The NFL sends teams to London every year for games that are always bad. How about they just keep the Jets for a year or two? New York already has the Giants. They dominate the headlines. Why do they need the Jets, who are constantly ignored?
The Jets could go to London and be a huge hit over there. They would win all their home games because teams would be jet lagged. In turn, they’d lose all their road games because they would be jet lagged. They’d be a 8-8 team that no one pays attention to instead of a 5-11 team that no one pays attention to.
If the NFL is going to move a franchise to Europe. My vote is for the Jets. The Wimpy Jets.
