Sully broadcast heading up Rose Bowl parade


Capt. Chesley B. "Sully" Sullenberger of Danville, the hero of the Hudson shown here with his wife Lorrie, was grand marshal of this morning's Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, which draws a crowd of 1 million people. On television, the parade is viewed by Americans across the country as well as in more than 200 international territories and countries.

This year's parade theme was "A Cut Above the Rest," to pay tribute to everyday heroes. Sully also will toss the coin for the 96th Rose Bowl game, which begins at 2:10 p.m. and features the Ohio State Buckeyes vs. the Oregon Ducks.

There's not a celebrity in the world I'd rather live close to. I'm so proud to think that Sullys from this area. He is an inspiration of a caliber that few others can be. God bless Sully!
