Miracle, You Say?

MIRACLE ON THE HUDSON is a headline I would have hoped to have seen describe some incredible play some incredible second baseman made on our behalf (a second baseman who's still sitting out there [1] on the open market, FYI). But this other thing [2] will do, too.

Having grudgingly rewatched Game Seven of the 2006 NLCS on MLBN the other night, I could have told you that you can never trust birds [3].

And this Sully [4] guy? Can't say I've seen a better save — or does Capt. Sullenberger get the hold and the ferry crews [5] the save? As a Mets fan who survived the icy plunge of late innings last August and September, I'd forgotten what a save looked like.

The 2:35 mark here [6] confirms we know a little something about miracles. US Airways Flight 1549…about as close to 1969 as you can get in real life. Nice work.

Very nice.
