NEW YORK -

Fireman Ed is retiring.
The New York Jets most famous fan is calling it a career.

Ed Anzalone wrote an article for New York sports Metro announcing his resignation.

Fireman Ed said he left the Jets' Thanksgiving loss before halftime.

He said that "confrontations with other Jets fans have become more common, even though most Jets fans are fantastic."

Anzalone plans to continue to go to Jets games, just not as Fireman Ed.
