Sisyphus was a Jets fan. How else to explain his fate?In all too brief summary James Carpenter Jersey , Sisyphus was a king of ancient Corinth. He betrayed one of Zeus’s secrets by revealing the whereabouts of Aegina, one of many, many victims of Zeus’ uncontrollable libido. Aegina had been spirited away by Zeus, and Sisyphus revealed her location to her father, the river god Asopus, in return for causing a spring to flow on the Corinthian acropolis.As you can imagine, Zeus was less than thrilled by Sisyphus’ opportunistic turn of conscience, and he resolved to punish Sisyphus in a particularly cruel way. Zeus ordered Death to chain Sisyphus in Hades for all eternity. Sisyphus, being a rather clever lad, expressed curiosity as to how the chains worked. As Death began to demonstrate, Sisyphus turned the tables on him, trapping Death in his own chains. As you can imagine, this made rather a mess of things back in the world of the living. With Death tied up in his own living Hell, as it were Cheap Nathan Shepherd Jersey , he could no longer claim his human prizes. Nobody died. Ares was not amused, as this made his favored form of entertainment, the battles of foolish mortals, rather pointless. Lots of maiming and dismembering, but nobody ever won or lost. An endless tie; one can see how this might have been a problem for Ares, the originalsports fan. Ares, outraged at the endless ties making a mockery of the playoffs, for which no team now qualified, decided he had had enough and tackled Sisyphus, freed Death, and turned Sisyphus over to Death once again. Death, being no simpleton, made sure he did not allow Sisyphus access to any chains or other binding commitments. As punishment for making a mockery of the gods, Sisyphus was made to endlessly roll a huge boulder up a steep hill. The particularly maddening nature of the punishment was reserved for Sisyphus due to his hubris Lac Edwards Jersey , which basically means you think you’re better than Zeus, which given Zeus’ nature seems like a fairly low bar to clear. Zeus accordingly showed he was better than Sisyphus by a cruel abuse of his arbitrary power (which clearly demonstrated his moral superiority), enchanting the boulder into rolling away from Sisyphus just before he reached the top, which gave Sisyphus a pretty frustrating afterlife. Ah well, as least the rolling stone gathered no moss, though reports of it killing two birds have yet to be confirmed.Camus, an absurd French dude and famous football fan (Camus was once asked by his friend Charles Poncet which he preferred, football or the theater; Camus replied, “Football, without hesitation”), eventually wrote a book about the crazy weird fate of Sisyphus, who, for all we know, is still attempting to be one with the Rolling Stones. The book is in French Quincy Enunwa Jersey , so it’s mostly incomprehensible, but its title is The Myth of Sisyphus. In this book Camus tries to make sense of the absurdity of life as it is embodied in some Corinthian king who probably never existed and in any event had, by all accounts, a strange affinity for large stones. I’ll let Camus take it from here, as I can’t really do justice to his absurd musings:So I didn’t really understand all that, especially the part when Sisyphus without warning changed his name to Oedipus, but the best I can figure is that this absurd dude Camus thinks the nonexistent dude Sisyphus became a hero in the moment he recognized the eternal futility of his life’s .... errr ... death’s work. Which, it seems to me, makes Sisyphus a Jets fan, for what can be more futile and absurd than rooting for a team that can be counted on to always make the wrong decisions?And that, dear readers, is pretty cool. You and I and everyone else who in their benighted ignorance has yet to discover Gang Green Nation but nonetheless joins us in our devotion to the Jets, a team that fittingly began life as Titans, we are all tragic heroes Steve McLendon Jersey , the protagonists of our own mythical worlds. We all labor along with nonexistent Corinthian kings and thumb our noses at the cruel football gods, who are not worthy of our devotion. We begin each season anew, knowing full well it will in all likelihood end badly. We know the giant rock will eventually roll back, crushing our spirits, yet we push forward anyway, heroes all, united with Sisyphus in the absurdist tragicomedy that is being a Jets fan. Macc may be back, another fruitless draft looms directly ahead, but you know what, the football gods can kiss my ummm... you know.It is absurd, and it is gloriousJets 2018 Roster Countdown: Number 22 Trumaine Johnson Trumaine Johnson is the next player up in our roster countdown.Name: Trumaine JohnsonNumber: 22Year with Jets: 1stProjected Role: Superstar cornerbackHis 2017: Johnson’s final season with the Rams was a bit of a down year. He allowed the fifth most cover yards in the league according to PFF. That didn’t prevent the Jets from giving him a huge contract which made him one of the richest defensive players in the league.2018 will be a success if: Johnson plays at an All Pro level. It’s that simple. He is getting paid as though he is an elite shutdown corner who can be left on an island and take away elite receivers. Beyond the contract, however, the Jets are constructed to have Johnson fill that role. There isn’t much of a pass rush on this team. The Jets are going to need to blitz heavily and trust that the secondary can hold up one on one. Johnson is going to draw the toughest assignments on a weekly basis. His ability to play at a superstar level will likely go a long way toward determining this team’s fate in 2018.Odds of making the roster: Lock (>99%)
