This has to be one of my all-time favorite letters to the editor moments while I’ve been running Busted Coverage since way back in 2007 when I started this thing based off the absurdities from the world of sports. Take this situation where a guy is out letting his puppy take a leak and a bright light appears in the sky early on a Sunday morning.
Ohio Man Bruce doesn’t know what to think about the light in the sky. He’s not used to planes landing at the airport because Toledo Express Airport has like four or five daily inbound flights. What could it possibly be? Secret military mission early on a Sunday?
Nah, turns out it was the Bowling Green football team’s charter flight coming back from Eugene, Oregon and a 58-24 L.
From the Toledo Blade Letters to the Editor section:
Sunday, Sept. 2, about 6:30 a.m., I had my puppy dog in the back yard when I looked up and saw a bright light in the sky coming from the West. It was moving fairly slow and seemed to be quite low. As it got closer I saw that it wasn’t any kind of a commercial or military jet plane and was quite large, lit up with flashing red light in the top center. It kept moving in an Easterly direction until it appeared to be about some place over Toledo, and then it slowly turned southwest toward the airport and shortly thereafter was out of sight. What was it – a drone, a secret military project? I’d like to know. No, I wasn’t dreaming and no, I hadn’t been out on an all-night binge. Surely someone else must have also seen this “object.”
Just think of Bruce sitting there still wondering if the government was spying on him. You know he’s been on Facebook freaking out, telling people the deep state is coming to blow up his house. Coming to steal his dog for some secret testing program. Poor Bruce. You know this has been on his mind.
