Jet fan's life goes slip-slidin' away

    A) Take saucer sled out to driveway.

    B) Fly into street as fast as you can.

    C) Check for cars.

    I feel like there could be some improvements in that technique.

    A police source said it's believed he had been drinking while watching the game.

    Story said he was celebrating the Jets' win, but I think he was inspired by the tire commercial.

    Was thinking this was a kid or some foolish young adult.

    No, instead it's a 46 year old. Jesus. Talk about should have known better. Wow. And yes, I think it's pretty safe to assume drinking was involved.

    I think even most kids would recognize the sheer stupidity of that idea.

    Well, they replaced it with a plastic one 'cause everytime Katherine revved up the microwave, I'd piss my pants and forget who I was for a half-hour or so. And it ain't real sturdy so... I don't know if I oughta go sailin' down no hill with nothin' between the ground and my brains but a piece of government plastic.

    Do you really think it matters, Eddie?

    Well, you see, the plate runs underneath my part here, and the other side... Nothing. But here, if this gets dented, then my hair just ain't gonna look right

    Clark: Yeah, I know the feeling

    My first thought reading the thread title was, "wouldnt Paul Simon R.I.P. be more appropriate?"

    So I guess sports can be life or death (i.e. A Jets loss and maybe the sled doesn't get pulled out)?

    This is really an awful story. I can't help but think of all of those "Now I can die happy" sentiments & signs with the '94 Rangers or '04 Red Sox.

    Imagine the irony if the car involved was a Bronco, a Jaguar or a Charger.
