On August 17, 1969, the Jets & Giants met for the 1st time in a pre-season game at the Yale Bowl in New Haven, CT. Joe Namath and Gang Green were coming off their SB III triumph over the Colts that January while the G-Men were in the throes of an 18 yr decline!!!! On that hot Sunday afternoon, the AFL team from Queens (they played at Shea) beat the NFL team from the Bronx (they played at Yankee Stadium) 37-14 and after the game the 60,000 plus had to contend with the mother of all traffic jams as many cars were leaving a "small" event in Upstate NY called WOODSTOCK!!!!
