Each time I think a week is going to go by without the most ridiculous story of the NFL season coming from the New York Jets, I am proven wrong. This week it doesn't come from ESPN or Tim Tebow or even Bart Scott, but Jet super fan extraordinaire Fireman Ed.
Fireman Ed is stepping down.
Stepping down from what exactly I'm not sure, but he wrote an entire column at Metro.us to explain his "resignation" that has sent shockwaves around the nation. Shockwaves. In fact, I'm surprised a national day of mourning hasn't been put in place to give all of us the proper time to cope with such tragic news. How will we go on with our mundane daily lives knowing Fireman Ed will not be there to loudly spell the world "Jets"? How will we go on? How!
Ladies and gentlemen, Fireman Ed...
