Phillies fans chant USA after news of bin Laden’s death

When news broke of Osama Bin Laden’s death, the NY Mets and Philadelphia Phillies were in a heated divisional matchup but any rivalry was interrupted by the fans chanting “USA!” Players did not find out the reason behind the chanting until an inning later. After the game, Mets third-baseman David Wright said, “I don’t like to give Philadelphia fans too much credit, but they got this one right,” and pitcher Chris Young said, “There are some things in life that are bigger than a game. To hear the crowd chant ‘USA’, I got chills.”
