When Fans at the May 1, 2011 Mets-Phillies Game Heard the News That Osama bin Laden was Dead, They Cheered Wildly. Here is the Video
The death of Osama bin Laden came as a surprise to just about everybody. Most of us were going about our daily lives when we heard the news that Osama bin Laden is dead. Some of us were at the May 1, 2011 New York Mets-Philadelphia Phillies game.
When news spread of the death of Osama bin Laden during the 9th inning, fans at the Mets-Phillies game cheered wildly and chanted "USA! USA!"
The chanting became so loud that it seemed to distract Mets infielder Daniel Murphy when he was at the plate.
WFAN announcer Howie Rose said: “The crowd is chanting ‘USA,’ and the reason for that is there are reports circulating — I’m not sure if they’ve yet been confirmed by the White House — that Osama bin Laden is dead.”
