A few months back we wrote a story about how Jets fan Ed Anzalone (better known as “Fireman Ed”) was facing assault charges for a minor (very minor) run-in he had with a Giants fan.
In a refreshing sign that this country may not be losing its self respect after all, the Giants fan in this whole ordeal, Christopher Black, has decided to drop the charges.
"[Ed is] extremely happy, and holds no ill will toward the other man," said Anzalone's lawyer, Jonathan Lomurro, according to the New York Daily News. "Now he can go enjoy the football game this Sunday."
Black did not file charges against Fireman Ed until a month after their scuffle became a YouTube sensation. If you haven’t seen it yet, here you go.
