Interesting. They're saying they don't think its the Higgs boson.

Its a shame Fermilab is about to be decommissioned.

The Tevatron is being decommissioned, which is a shame, but Fermilab itself will remain standing. ;)

Wrong decay products. Actually, there's nothing in the standard model that should be there. Though this sort of thing has happened before, and turned out to be nothing.
