There are 3 reasons why I made the illustration above.
1)When I was about 12 my Dad told me he was a Jets fan; therefore by the rules of nature and genetics I became a Jets fan too. Unfortunately the team has not been in the playoffs for a while, a very long while. But that just changed this season.
2) I like to make illustrations about prominent Mexican Americans (check out my illo of Astro_Jose). Mark Sanchez grandparent’s are from the states of Zacatecas and Jalisco. Almost unwittingly he has become a role model for latino’s and a source of pride for Mexicans and Mexican Americans by being the most successful Mexican American in the sport. He was the 5th overall pick in the NFL draft and I think he is the rookie of the year.
3)The whole hot dog incident was just too funny, and so was all the media attention it received.
The game was against the Raiders and the Jets were beating them good. Mark Sanchez did apologize for that improper conduct. Give the man a break though. Wearing all that gear and looking at all the fans in the stadium chomping down them hot dogs would make me hungry too. He donated a thousand hot dogs to a soup kitchen in NJ as part of his apology.
I think someone photoshopped this pic but its the only one I could find.
Go Jets! Go Mark Sanchez! Hot dogs! Tacos! Burritos! Give him the fuerza!
