    Cannons to the left, cannons to the right!


       And SEAL teams to drop in on high, dry ground to snap up the most visible invisible man in Pakistan ....

       Thanks, as others have said, to the service men and women who put this all together ...  long months, maybe even years of prep.  But they did it right!


      And always thanks to Papi.  Always!

      Nice post, Jete!

    It was great and if he had the presence of mind to linger just a little longer it would have been even better! Special day. Special people. Special moment. The fact that he did it at all speaks to his personality and appreciation for these guys which truly was wonderful. We should do more of this sort of thing, spontaneously. All of us.

    yeah, it's great to see millionaires, who play baseball, hug underpaid soldiers, who put their life on the line everyday. anybody see something wrong with that scenario?

    It's not a scenario, it's the real deal! Ballplayers paying tribute to our men and women in uniform shows their patriotism and makes me proud to be an American!

    I personally feel very uncomfortable with all the flag waiving and sports-like cheering in the Wake of the Bin Laden execution.  But, the Papi hugging the soldiers after the dinger moment made me cry.  Awesome.
