About Fireman Ed
Anzalone (born September 19, 1959), better known as Fireman Ed, is a superfan of the New York Jets.
One of the most well known National Football League fans, he has risen to prominence by appearing on many local radio shows.
He was not the creator of the famous chant, "J-E-T-S, Jets!, Jets!, Jets!" which originally was led by two retired NYPD Jet fans – alternating from one end zone to the other end zone, in the upper deck only. An actual New York City firefighter, Fireman Ed was injured on the job in 2007. During the butt fumble game, a rout of the Jets by the New England Patriots on Thanksgiving night 2012, Anzalone left the game before halftime, stating that he would no longer lead cheers at Jet games as Fireman Ed.
At the first game of the 2015 NFL season, Fireman Ed returned to lead cheers for the Jets.
