No Easy Day, the book about the raid that killed Osama Bin Laden, actually serves as an autobiography of one (pseudonym’d) man’s life as a Navy SEAL. The book, which is mostly full of war stories and action scenes, contains a little bit of a shout out to Philadelphia Phillies fans. In a chapter about the hours after the raid was completed, No Easy Day says:
The mission had been secret for over a month now, and suddenly it was all over the news. We watched footage of the crowds that spontaneously gathered outside the White House, Ground Zero, and the Pentagon. At a Major League Baseball game in Philadelphia, fans started to chant “U-S-A.” Everyone commented about how young they looked. Kids like that didn’t know what the United States was like before September 11, 2001.”
No Easy Day is out now, and well worth your time.
