NFL Fly Overs.

For Veteran's Day the NFL did a special report by Steve Sabol on the pre-game fly overs. Folks, I've been to many different football games and the fly over is probably one of the best parts about the game. It doesn't matter if you win or lose, the fly over touches a part of me that lasts. I know that since 9-11 I tend to mist up seeing the military fly over. Hell watching this clip brought a touch of moisture to me. There is just something touching about it. Even if you don't like football, it's worth going over to see the report and the fly overs. And even though they focus on the Chicago Bears, when they show the cockpit view, you can see my corporate headquarters. It's almost like they are trying to aim for it.

Below is the fly over from the San Diego Vs Packer's game I was at in September.

This one is a clip of the Minnesota Vs. Packers Veteran's day fly over. This one isn't as well made.

That is some seriously cool shit.

I always tear up during the Anthem, and when you see a flyover, there's no stopping the tears of pride, not to mention the goosebumps that have all the hair on your arms standing at attention.

Totally awesome. Started getting a little misty eyed just from the video.

God Bless our Military. The finest in the world!
