Famous New York Jets icon Fireman Ed announced he would be leaving his role as the team’s unofficial mascot on Sunday. Ed Anzalone has been a driving force for the Jets fan base since 1975, and his departure this Sunday was unforeseen. Hanging up the helmet midway through the 2012 season after close to thirty seven years of fanhood seems a little harsh, but Fireman Ed has a good reason. Or does he?
