Two subjects I don’t get into are politics and religion.

Those are the type of debates that have no end and since neither interest me I just keep my mouth closed.  I have read some things about the reign of Gaddafi, interesting stuff.

After years in power it appears he has been killed this morning, but the interesting thing is the person who found him was a fan a particular storied baseball franchise.

Deadspin has the details.

Per the BBC’s live blog: “1326: A fighter in Sirte has told the BBC his account of the reported capture. Mohammed, a young fighter in his 20s, wearing a blue T-shirt and a New York Yankees baseball cap, said he had found the colonel hiding in a hole in the ground in the city of Sirte. He told the BBC that the former Libyan leader said to him simply: ‘Don’t shoot’.”

Wonder what the kid thinks about ARod’s contract situation?  Can we get him on the international Jack Bauer line?
