Oh Say Can You See

Soon after the attacks of 9/11, a friend and I were headed to downtown Phoenix for a concert. As we drove down Central Avenue, a large shadow was cast across the street and a rumble washed over us. We looked up to see a very large jet, flying very low, heading south. It was chilling.

Then we realized that Game 7 of the World Series* was being played that evening, as well. As hair raising as the flyover was to us in our car, I can only imagine what it was like for everyone in that stadium (many of them New Yorkers and other Yankee fans) after hearing the National Anthem.

If you can watch our military execute a flyover, while you are in the stands about to enjoy any one of America’s favorite sports and not feel the pride swelling in your chest, you are dead inside.

* Yes, I do realize the video was about NFL flyovers. I don’t have a story about an NFL flyover – I have a story about an MLB flyover.
