Mets Reaction To News Of Osama Bin Laden
“Obviously this is a big night for the United States. I wish we could have finished the game two hours ago and celebrated a little bit of it. We’ll take a nice ride home, take the day off and get ready for San Francisco. This is a good win for us, and obviously a huge win for America tonight.”
“The first thing I thought about was going to Walter Reed. The emotions those guys must be going through. It’s just an incredible moment.”
“Mission accomplished. At first I was hearing the chants and I didn’t know what was going on. To know that we finally got Bin Laden is a great feeling. It’s about time.”
“I heard the chants and they were great. It was a pretty neat thing. It was emotional. Hopefully this brings some closure but it’s still not over.”
“It’s probably a night I’ll never forget. I came inside and heard the news. You could hear the crowd chanting, ‘U-S-A.’ And I got chills hearing that. It was a pretty neat atmosphere and place to be to get that kind of news. It’s certainly a historic night and a great victory for the United States and the war on terrorism.”
