Jets rookie QB Mark Sanchez listens to “Fire & Rain” before games. The $50 million rookie mellows out to James Taylor on his iPod as part of his pregame routine, according to older brother Brandon Sanchez. Mark Sanchez, only 22, is regarded as mature beyond his years, but James Taylor? Why not the Black Eyed Peas? Jay-Z? “He likes soft rock before games – James Taylor, Elton John, Billy Joel,” his brother said Saturday in a phone interview. “I know it sounds strange. I guess he gets it from my parents.” — NY Daily News

I know Dirty Sanchez had a great rookie debut, but soft rock pregame..C’mon Dude.. -TO
