Allow the doughnuts to tell the story about Jets and Giants fan loyalty
The expectations surrounding the New York Giants and New York Jets are a bit different heading into the 2013 season. The Giants are not exactly a Super Bowl contender, but few people would be surprised if they snuck their way into the playoffs. The Jets? Not so much.
At this point, less than seven wins is looking like a legitimate possibility for Rex Ryan’s squad. Mark Sanchez is injured and Geno Smith threw three interceptions in his last preseason appearance. And if you need any further proof of how fans are feeling about the team heading into the new season, look no further than these football-themed pastries.
Even at the Dunkin' Donuts in 125th and Lenox, it's hard out here for a Jets fan. pic.twitter.com/ylexU56bHm

Jets fans can try to convince themselves that their doughnuts were freshly restocked before the photo was taken, but we all know that’s not the case. The reality is people are sick of circus moments like this, and they’re taking it out on the doughnuts. Either that, or Rex used to buy up all the Jets doughnuts before he lost a ton of weight.
