He passed away on august 6th. Gonna miss my old road trip buddy    Edit: below is a text from his niece   “Hi Jim.  I meant to text Wednesday but it’s been a hectic couple of days.

This is terrible news. @Savage69 was the kind of guy that I originally thought you had to watch out for. Then after getting to know him, I realized it was the  other way around. He was the one watchin

John Savage and I met decades ago...when the internet first got started.  We belonged to a forum called the Green House which is now long gone.  John only had one jersey because he refused to invest i

What’s up mate? 

Lots of things. How about you?

 

We should make this a tribute thread for Savage69. He had 16 years of posts and probably saw the Jets beat the Pats 8 times.

I love Savage and I always have. That avatar causes us problems with Google though. So unfortunately that isn't an option for us.

Yes, Savage is laughing at me right now lol.

That's the way he rolled lol

I just searched my private message inbox for Savage. And a few threads popped up about him, people complaining about that avatar. Too funny! That is definitely how he rolled.

 

I haven't been here in ages but will always remember him and his avatar.

Now you need to tell us who complained about his avatar haha

The avatar was always fun while surfing the site at work. Lots of memories of hastily switching windows whenever someone approached my desk.

That really sucks. RIP. You dont always realize when people stop posting but now it does dawn on me that I havent seen that sweet avatar for a while. Too bad this team couldn't give him one more championship season before he left.....

OMG!  I’m shocked.  And sad.

Never met Savage, but reading his posts on JI and JN for over two decades made me think of him as a great dude.

 

R.I.P.  my friend

I never complained but I was always afraid that his avatar would get me in trouble if the wrong person walked by at the wrong time while surfing the board at work. I mean the only alternative was to not read/post during work and we all know that's not happening!

Except wasn't Sav sorta ripped and a badass of sorts?  I feel like we saw his pic somewhere online along the way.

This news has REALLY hit me hard in the feels, to steal a millennial internet phrase.  Like a few have noted, Sav goes as far back as I can recall in my own lengthy time online with the Jets.  I really liked Sav, and he always tolerated me better than most, lol.  I never met him, but I'd like to think we'd have gotten along in person like gangbusters honestly.

I wish, especially for "internet friends", you had the chance to say how much you appreciated them before they go.  To let them know that they were, in some part, a valued part of your e-life, in this case our collective mutual love of the Jets.

Damn.  Clear skies and calm seas Sav.  

 

There’s a pic of him from 10 years ago on fb in a tank top at the Bahia cabana when he was 67. @Maxman was definitely intimidated 

 

yeah, he was a genetic freak.

Not to make this about me, but lately I've been dealing with a lot of "existential dread" and thoughts about death  and dying, the afterlife, etc.  One of those thoughts that popped into my head was thinking about what it was going to be like when we inevitably started losing more of our long-time JN posters.  This sucks.  

RIP Savage.  You were one of the greats here.

And how Sav, unknowingly through his avatar, helped initiate myriad marital (or otherwise) bliss encounters.  We owe him a mountain of thanks.
