Way to go Jets fan....

The New York Jets’ rousing victory in New England was marred by the death of a Jets fan in Staten Island, New York.

John Annese of the Staten Island Advance reports that 46-year-old Raymond Larsen celebrated the Jets win by sledding down his steep driveway in a Mark Sanchez jersey. The sled vaulted into the road below, and Larsen was killed by an oncoming motorist.

The driver, a 61-year-old woman, was not intoxicated and police don’t suspect any crime on her part.

Larsen was known by his neighbors for his buoyant personality.
“It’s really a big loss not having him on the block,” his neighbor Amir Alishahi said. “He was really a fun, fun guy.”

Where's Wes Welker when we need him?

I'm sure he's got something to add here. LOL.

:) Joe Texan calls that dying with your boots on and going out like a "real fan".

Yeah I felt really bad for the guy, because I could see myself doing some similar spur of the moment thing if I lived up north and if my team did what the Jets did.

Life is extremely fragile, one wrong decision can easily cost you your life.

That could be a King of Queens episode.
