Jets QB's Dad

Will Not be Deployed to Haiti

1/20/2010 2:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

NY Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez might have to get an extra ticket to the AFC Championship game this weekend -- TMZ has learned his fire captain father will not be deployed to Haiti to aid in relief efforts.

Mark Sanchez and Nick Sanchez
Mark's father, Nick, runs a fire department in Irvine, California that happens to be one of 28 urban search and rescue teams in the U.S -- and last week the guys were told to prepare in case their services were needed in Haiti.

TMZ has learned an 80 member group composed of rescue personnel from Orange County was mobilized and sent to March Air Force Base over the weekend -- but Nick was not selected to travel with that group.

Eventually, the 80-member task force was demobilized before they were shipped out to Haiti.

Now, Nick claims he's going to Indianapolis to watch his son attack the Colts -- but reminded us that his fire team is always preparing for "the opportunity to use our expertise."

Wow...this is some news, huh? A dude who gets to take a taxpayer funded rig to Costco everyday to shop for dinner doesn't have to go to work so he can see his kid play football? This is huge TMZ. A real hero this guy and his co-workers are.

We pay taxes too, you jackass. Plus, a lot of us are paying Social Security AND personal pension...of which personal pension is the ONLY thing that we are eligible for. So, when youre sitting on your a** collecting S.S. to pay for your trailer and your Natty Ice, maybe you can muster up enough brain power to write us a thank you note.
Dude, is allowed to take vacation time to see his son play, just like anyone else. So Stop being such a hater. And stop listening to what other people are spouting and actually ASK someone, before you start talking about stuff you know nothing about.

Write you a thank you note?!?! Are you effing high? A thank you note for what exactly? At least cops are out there trying to prevent crime in this country. What exactly are you doing? Pulling hoses and sleeping with other guys? Waving at all the kids looking for appreciation?

What you're really doing is running one of the biggest scams in the country, namely pension fraud. You and your cohorts are running your salaries up as high as they can go via overtime so that when you retire you have an average annual salary in the $150k range. When in reality the base salary of your job is probaby $75k there in California. Take that $150k average (with your crooked overtime "work") and you get 75% or more of that in retirement? Yeah, let me send you a thank you note for stealing from me. "Personal pension" my ass. That's my pension, dude.

If you had balls you'd do your job as a volunteer like they do in many cities across the country. There's no need for an overstaffed fire department in any city. You guys just suck up the taxpayer money and want a thank you note.

I hear it's raining in California today. Better go check and make sure the firehouse roof doesn't have a leak.
