JetBlue opened the long awaited Terminal 5 at New York’s JFK Airport earlier today, meaning your road weary editor had the dubious pleasure of being one of the first touristas (other than this creepy character) to stumble into the newly opened WFAN Store.  I’m sorry to report most of the swag on offer is fairly generic licensed NY team attire, with a handful of WFAN tchotkes (mugs, hoodie) strategically hidden at the back of the shop.

How much longer must travelers wait to purchase an anatomically correct Steve Somers plush toy? Or, for that matter, the hottest Halloween costume in recent memory, the WFAN Joe Benigno Mask & Cape?

    Strange you should mention WFAN-themed costumes. Me and several neighborhood children are doing a group costume this year. We’ve sewn together this giant latex (albeit sagging) dome and hoping that other revelers will recognize us as one of Mike Francesa’s breasts.
