Jets Fan Fireman Ed Hanging Up His Helmet: "Fireman" Ed Anzalone, the well-known New York Jets fan who leads the J-E-T-S chant from the stands, is giving up the unofficial job because of abusive fans. "Confrontations with other Jets fans have become more common, even though most Jets fans are fantastic," he writes for Metro. "This is an indication of how society has lost and is continuing to lose respect for one another. ... Although I can 'hold my own,' I do not want to lose my temper and make a stupid mistake. I have a responsibility to the families and kids that enjoy the game and Fireman Ed." The former New York City firefighter has been rooting for the team since 1975.
