Balls As Big As Churchbells

I may think I am cool and all badass (well not really but I needed to write something for the press release) but this guy - Captain C.B. Sully Sullenberger is the real shit, bitches. Most emergency landings especially of jetliners don't go so well and most fail in a spectacular way. A US Airways jetliner with 150 passengers and 5 crew members plunged into the icy Hudson River on Thursday afternoon less than five minutes after taking off from LaGuardia Airport. With very little time to weigh their options, Capt. C.B. Sully Sullenberger and crew performed heroic actions to bring all 150 people to safety by making a water landing! C.B. deserves all the accolades he is getting and will continue to get. If I was him I would never get in the cockpit again because you know how the gods love to mess with any kind of good karma anyone generates. Any landing you can walk away from is a good one. Oh and I learned today (February 7th) that this pilot has so much integrity that he called the library he borrowed a book from to tell them that it will be late cause its in the hold of the plane that crashed into the Hudson River! You would think they would give him a pass on that fine don't you? Wow!
