Mmmmmm…Green New York Jets Bagels…
Boy, do those look…gross.
But that hasn’t stop die-hard Jets fans/bagel factory owner Warren Bell and his son from whipping up a batch of dyed-green bagels which they will be giving out for free to Jets fans from 7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. this upcoming Friday, Saturday and Sunday at their Bagels by Bell factory in Brooklyn.
“I’m a Jets fan. My son’s a Jets fan,” said factory owner Warren Bell, who has season tickets. “We said, ‘Hey, let’s have some fun.'”
While I admire Bell’s “Gotta Support The Team”-iveness, Bell understands the bagels don’t have the most appetizing appearance, even though the bagels are only green because of food coloring. In fact, Bell originally offered up to one million free bagels to his distributors to deliver to various delis and supermarkets, he concedes they likely would have not generated much interest among those who sell his normal bagels.
“To be honest, I’m not sure if they’re really going to want them,” Bell said. “A supermarket won’t want to sell green bagels.”
Well, why the hell not? Who wouldn’t want to sink their teeth into a moldy-looking baked item that more closely resembles a curled-up turd excreted by Fireman Ed after he ate way too much Spanakopita and then washed those Greek delicacies down with a couple of gallons of Shamrock Shakes? They’re free!
