LOS ANGELES — Pilot Chesley Sullenberger jokes that his heroic handling of a disabled jetliner brought him "rock star sex" in an interview for "NBC's People of the Year" TV special.

Sullenberger, who safely ditched a US Airways plane in New York's Hudson River after geese hit the engines, is among those interviewed by Matt Lauer for the Thanksgiving Day special.
Lauer asked Sullenberger and his wife, Laurie, whether his sudden celebrity helped or hurt their relationship.
"He doesn't know I'm gonna say this, but I had joked the other day that ... the hero sex really helps a 20-year-old marriage," Laurie Sullenberger said with a laugh, according to an NBC transcript.
"Rock star sex," Chesley Sullenberger chimed in.
Lauer also interviews Taylor Swift, Nadya Suleman, Susan Boyle and Kobe Bryant for the hour-long special airing 9 p.m. EST Thursday on NBC.

More Sully? Not again. I'd like to hear more from Captain Richard Phillips who gave himself up to spend some quality time with Somali pirates until Navy SEALS sent them to Allah.

From Commander, U.S. Naval Forces Central Command/5th Fleet Public Affairs
MANAMA, Bahrain (NNS) -- At approximately 7:19 p.m (12:19 p.m. EDT) April 12 U.S. naval forces rescued Capt. Richard Phillips, the master of Motor Vessel Maersk-Alabama.

"This was an incredible team effort, and I am extremely proud of the tireless efforts of all the men and women who made this rescue possible" said Vice Adm. Bill Gortney, commander, U.S. Naval Forces Central Command.

"The actions of Capt. Phillips and the civilian mariners of Maersk-Alabama were heroic. They fought back to regain control of their ship, and Captain Phillips selflessly put his life in the hands of these armed criminals in order to protect his crew."

Following the rescue, Phillips was initially taken aboard the Norfolk, Va., based guided-missile destroyer USS Bainbridge (DDG 96). Phillips was subsequently flown to the San Diego based amphibious assault ship USS Boxer (LHD 4) where he contacted his family, received a routine medical evaluation and is resting comfortably.

U.S. military forces have one pirate in custody; three were killed in the rescue.

I'm throwing the flag on Sully here....15 yard penalty. Old people having sex?!? I have to read about THAT now...C'MON MAN! I threw up in my mouth just thinking about that. Old people having sex is not something anyone needs to be talking about. His 15 minutes are up...he needs to shut up now.

Old people need sex as much as you. Just remember, soon you will be old too if you are lucky.

I worship no man, just my Lord and Savior. I'll bet he puts his pants on one leg at a time just like I do.

Do you bow to idols?

There may be an inferiority complex at play here. It sure seems some people get riled up over nothing, just because Sully said this or Sully said that.
Must be a difference between east and west.

Mocking Christians eh? Who or what do you worship?


Worship. Think about that word for a minute and tell me what applies to that... It sort of sounds like "war ship". But I suppose the meaning is totally different. Worship...like lay down and die for THIS. I WORSHIP it! If all the Christians who would die for religion died today there would be about 5 fewer people around. Nobody "war ships" anything anymore.

Speaking of what to worship...I worship time off. Not much else..
