Was Mark Gastineau drunk during Jets Ring of Honor speech? (AUDIO)
It seems that when former Jets greats (see Joe Namath) return to their home stadium for night games, the standard etiquette is to get hammered drunk before letting someone put a microphone in front of you.
On Sunday, former Jets sack master Mark Gastineau was inducted into the Jets’ Ring of Honor on Monday Night, and his halftime speech was … well, interesting, that’s for sure! In it, a slurring Gastineau – taking extra time to get his words out – calls out fans for booing before getting religious and ending with a labored “Let’s enjoy it and wiiiinn in the seeeccccoooonnnddd haaaaalllffff … Halleluuuuujaaah!”
Of course, Gastineau’s speech could also be affected by all the blows he took to the head during his NFL career … if that’s the case, we apologize in advance. And if he wasn’t drunk, Gastineau is yet another stirring walking advertisement for player safety.
Listen for yourself below, and let the internet memes commence!
