Earlier in the day, we had posted the video of Jimmy Fallon from "The Tonight Show" issuing the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge to the New York Jets entire team and organization after Jets owner Woody Johnson challenged Fallon, which he completed on Tuesday.

After Tuesday's practice, the Jets, lead by general manager John Idzik, head coach Rex Ryan along with their players, accepted Fallon's challenge; the duration of the video can be seen here from aside from the clip posted to YouTube from Cortland from someone on the field.

Since they didn't have 90 buckets to give out to every player, the Jets made it interesting with a prop; having the Corland, New York fire company come out, raise themselves up in the air, and shoot down cold water onto all of the Jets players (you can see two Jets players using the buckets from dumping the water on Ryan and Idzik to cover themselves up, which is extremely hilarious.)

Before the challenge was completed, Idzik challenged the New York Mets entire team, the New York Yankees entire team as well as the defending Super Bowl Champions, the Seattle Seahawks. Ryan challenged New Jersey governor Chris Christie (who has actually already completed the challenge), along with the entire Cleveland Browns team as well.

The Ice Bucket Challenge is bringing a ton of awareness along with a great amount of donations, as there have been over $4 million worth of donations since the Ice Bucket Challenge went viral, up from the $1.2 million donated last year for ALS.

Seeing your team play in the SuperBowl is priceless. Watching the SuperBowl live in the stands for $1 per week is beyond priceless. Find out how at, the future of Championship Tickets. Tags: Football, Jimmy Fallon, John Idzik, New York, New York Jets, NFL, Rex Ryan
