NEW YORK (WFAN) — Fireman Ed says he still lives and dies with the New York Jets, even though he’s not leading the chant at MetLife Stadium anymore.
Ed Anzalone joined WFAN’s Sid Rosenberg on Saturday to chat about his decision to step down as the team’s unofficial mascot. Anzalone said it was a confrontation in the bathroom during on Thanksgiving Day 2012 — the night of the infamous “Buttfumble” — that made him hang up his helmet.
“It’s not the Jets fans. Believe me,” he said. “Listen, you’ve got a lot of people that go to these games, they’re not a fan of anybody. They’re just there because — you know, they’ve got their beers in them, and they’re gonna be tough guys.”
