New York Jets
*I have attended games at two different stadiums for the Jets.*
Name of Stadium: Giants Stadium/The Meadowlands AND MetLife Stadium/The New Meadowlands
Capacity: 80,242 AND 82,566
Game Attended: At the old stadium, I worked every home game but one in 2007 with my family attending the last game of that season. I also attended the last Jets game (versus Bengals) in the old stadium with my friend, Reba, at the end of the 2009 season. I have attended a couple of Jets games with Christopher in the new stadium - Thanksgiving 2010 (versus Bengals) as well as a game versus the Jaguars in 2011.
Worked a game at this stadium? Yes, I worked pre-game and at halftime of nearly every game in 2007. I have never worked at the new stadium.

|Green Room circa 2007|
We had Boyz to Men (so nice and considerate) and Jennifer Hudson (super high maintenance) in to perform the anthem. Dan Rather, Eddie Kaye Thomas (AKA Finch from the American Pie movies), and Joe Namath were among the celebrities that I recall hosting in the green room pre-game. This was a fun job, but it was really hard to not be super excited about being in the same somewhat small space with these people!
My family came to NYC for the holidays that year and managed to catch the last Jets game of the season. It was super cold so we had some fun with the "hot cups" sold by vendors. In my best New York accent, "Get your hot cup, here!" Maybe you just had to be there!
