Hero Pilot to Rescue Brewers Before They Crash


After their plane crash landed in the Hudson River, the flight crew has been feted, celebrated and honored from the captain getting an invite to the inauguration to a special cocktail being made in his honor and now, even the co-pilot gets to get in on the fun. Jeff Skiles, the flight’s first officer and a Wisconsin native will throw the first pitch at the home opener for the Milwaukee Brewers.

“Jeff Skiles is a great representative of the state of Wisconsin,” said Rick Schlesinger, the team’s executive vice president for business operations. “We are honored to have Jeff throw out the first pitch on Opening Day.”

Seeing that the Brewers just resigned Eric Gagne, who did his absolute best to singlehandedly prevent the Brewers from reaching the playoffs, depending on how good Skiles’ pitch is maybe they should sign him for the bullpen too. Hell, I’m sure he throws faster than Trevor Hoffman…

Also, what other professions can you think of besides State Police officers, airline pilots and 70s porn stars can you think of that still rock the mustache as a group?
