Yes, folks, through some serious internet sleuthing, I discovered that this Sad Jets Fan is a 20-something guy named Jeff who seems to know the people making these TB Times images. In an Instagram direct message, Jeff confirmed it was him. When I asked why he was featured here, he simply said, I guess because I’m a sad Jets fan who works in an office? I then said, That is a very legit reason … is that the most you’re going to tell me? And he stopped answering me.
Other sources close to the matter would neither confirm nor deny that including Jeff in this picture is a shout-out to someone they know. But more creeping around the internet leaves me pretty confident that it is.
With the Sad Jets Fan figured out, the second thing I wanted to know was, per usual: Where is Croc? Croc is the recurring reptile of many disguises who appears in every TB Times, even when you think he doesn’t. He was hidden in the snow in the the post after the Denver game and in the moon (I think) Steve Young Jersey in the Christmas image.
At first, I once again couldn’t find Croc anywhere in this one: I looked at the inspirational teamwork poster on the wall. No Croc. I zoomed in on the paperwork near Jeff. No Croc. I checked the calendar, the ceiling tiles, the water bubbler. No Croc.
And then my friend Jenny Vrentas, a writer at Sports Illustrated, told me she zoomed in on Tom Brady’s face and thought Croc might be depicted in his eyebrow hairs. I immediately followed suit.
