What a day eh? I guess we will add to our “where were you” list our whereabouts when you heard that Osama Bin Laden was killed by U.S. Special Ops. I found out while checking out Twitter while watching Mets-Phillies and fighting off sleep.
The news of that filthy fucking savage Bin Laden was dead was a like a jolt of adrenalin. As much as I was enjoying the superb pitching of Chris Young, the three man ESPN booth was killing me, plus after a weekend of putting furniture together, managing a baseball game (a 13-3 opening day win for my Babe Ruth team) and a 5AM wakeup call looming, I was ready to hit the sack. My wife and kids had already went to bed early as my daughter and wife volunteered to work the Staten Island end of the 5 Boro Bike Tour with her Girl Scout troop and my son competed in a rifle sharp shooting contest upstate and left camp at 6:30 AM with my nephew in order to make out baseball game at 10:30AM, poor kid felt asleep on the couch and he’s to damn big now for me to carry him upstairs so I had to wake him up to go to bed. That sucks.
So with everyone but me and the cats off to sleep, I settle in to watch the rest of Mets-Phillies along with checking out Twitter. As I reading my timeline I keep seeing that President Obama will address the nation at 10:30 PM. WOW! This cannot be good, everything about it a Sunday, late at night, asking for clearance from the networks? First thing I thought was word of an impending attack on the U.S. and we need to get prepared. Then I thought that Gaddafi was dead. Good for the miserable scum bag. As my timeline was updating by the second, I realized this is much, much bigger. I switched on CNN and Wolff Blitzer knew what was going on but couldn’t say. Well, fuck you Wolff. I switch to MSNBC and some D-list anchor is on there and he is ready to report this unbelievable piece of news, when a director tells him in his ear piece not to. Mother fuckers! As I’m cursing out the news media I’m checking Twitter and the word on the social media street is OSAMA BIN LADEN was killed by American Special Ops. HOLLY FUCKING SHIT!!!!!! I switch down the dial to all places FOX News and lo and behold Geraldo Rivera is jumping out of his seat relaying the news that Bin Laden is dead, he then high fives a retired General who is in studio with him. At this point I run upstairs to wake up my wife to give her the news, she gets out of bed to join me in watching the President tell the world the American finally got its man.
I am so happy and proud the American Special Ops did this prick in and from reading how they did it solidifies the fact to the whole world that there is no dedicated and braver solider like the men and women of the American Military. That’s why this country with all the faults and bullshit we endure everyday can sleep at night knowing that the U.S. Armed Services is protecting us. There are still a bunch of scumbag wanna-be tough guys in the Middle East that think they can take down America and win those 72 virgins they’ve been brain washed into believing are waiting for them, the only thing waiting for those mindless douchebags is a bullet to the head with USA engraved on it.
Meanwhile the Mets beat the Phuck Phaces in 14 innings as Chris Young outpitched Cliff Lee and Frankie Rodriguez, Pedro Beato, and Taylor Bucholz pitched 6.1 shutout innings and Ronnie Paulino, RONNIE PAULINO!!!! Went 5 for 7 in his Mets debut as the Mets salvage a win in Philly.
I’m happy the Mets won , but there are not the news of the day and I don’t think they mind it at all.
