Flyover

A flyover is one of the coolest things about professional sports in the US. They are usually reserved for special games like Opening Day, playoffs, and championships. You’ll be sitting in the stands listening to a stirring rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner when four jets fly directly over the stadium, right over your head and your patriotism gene kicks into overdrive. The engines scream and the crowd roars and shouts out chants of ‘MURICA! and USA! USA! USA! It’s fricking awesome. Sometimes it’s jets, sometimes it’s helicopters, and sometimes it’s just big ass planes, but it’s always a military commercial. It makes you want to enlist and kill Al-Qaedas. Flyovers are always memorable and will probably be the highlight of your day if your team loses.

Helicopters

Helicopters are an amazing piece of technology. They can fly in any direction swiftly and nimbly, like giant manmade hummingbirds. Helicopters are useful for news and traffic reports, for transporting billionaires around, for fighting fires, and for military operations to secure oil derricks and kill innocent civilians around the world. I’ve never been in a helicopter and I don’t want to. I’m not scared of them, I just don’t trust them. If something goes wrong in a plane, you can always hope that the pilot can glide you to a safe landing. But if something goes wrong in a helicopter, you fall out of the sky life a rock. Planes have parachutes, life jackets, inflatable slides, and ejector seats in case of an emergency. An ejector seat in a helicopter would lead to an even faster and messier death. Those rotor blades can do some serious damage. Just ask Vic Morrow (That’s a really good joke, but it might require a quick Google search).
