The Jets have adopted Shrek as their unofficial mascot this season because, like the animated ogre, they're big, green and ugly but (hope to) stand victorious in the end. Given the 78,000 fans who showed up on Sunday for Shrek Day at Giants Stadium, where the Jets edged the Bengals 15-14, other sports teams might want to think about following the Jets' lead and take on a 'toon sidekick.
Well-oiled machine led by productive duo: a tall, scary-looking one, and his rounder, funnier sidekick
Oversized men in blue; schizophrenic play; slaves to all-powerful master
QUALITIES: Strong British Isles connection; omnipresent television cameras; currently without grown-up supervision
