    Just me, or is the cousin's quote about the family being "die-hard" fans a little out of place, all things considered.

    Where's Rumple? That story says the cops say there was no horseplay.

    Agreed -- the first one was fine ("He was real excited because this is his favorite team"), the second one not so much.

    Wish the reporter would have gotten a little more descriptive. If so many people saw it he could explain how someone could just trip, and fall four stories off an escalator.

    I have never been to Shea, so I can't get a picture in my head off how this would happen.

    I don't know how u can, but the Daily News had some different facts as everyone else...the NYT said the guy was sliding down the rail and the Post said police were investigating.

    Also all other news sources said he fell two stories and the DN had the guy at age 37...everyone else 36...so the News' facts aren't jibing with everything else.

    Gotta have venom as Leon Carter would say.

    I'm right here. How dare that story say something COMPLETELY different than the others. The NYDN takes the lead in the race to find the truth. So it turns out he fell four stories instead of two. The plot thickens.
