There's not much to laugh about when it comes to the New York Jets these days, but LaRon Landry is doing his best.
The team's starting safety is preparing to square off against his brother Dawan Landry on Sunday when the Jets visit the Jacksonville Jaguars. The pending reunion brought up memories of LaRon's childhood introduction to the gridiron.

LaRon told the New York Daily News he sported a fake ID at age four to gain entrance into a pee-wee football league for children ages five and up.

Landry skipped over the meaty details of how said ID was dreamt up, designed and manufactured, commenting only on the punishment it led to for opposing two-foot-tall running backs.

"They called me the hammer," he said.

We're still pondering this origin story.
