Yankees on alert as Hunley surfaces in New York
The Post and Courier ^ | June 4, 2013 | Brian Hicks

On Friday afternoon, a New York motorist called police with a tip about a potential terror threat. Seems someone was hauling a suspicious-looking object — it resembled a torpedo — on the highways around the city.

Before long 30 agencies, including the Department of Homeland Security, were searching for this potential menace.

Even Coast Guard cutters in the area were on the lookout, since the thing looked sort of like a boat.

They should have set the terror color chart to Rebel Gray, because they were just hunting for a bunch of good ol’ boys from Summerville hauling a replica of the H.L. Hunley to Connecticut for the weekend.

“It’s pretty bad when four Confederates and a replica of the Hunley can cause all this,” says Mark Clark, general manager of the exhibit. “Maybe they were worried we were here to get them back.”...

"...for a while Friday and Saturday, local, state and federal authorities spent an inordinate amount of time looking for the replica."

At least they didn't roll out 9,000 LEOs and do a house-to-house search of two NY boroughs...

There’s nothing more dangerous than a torpedo launched on the freeway.

Especially if your tired and overworked crew accidentally launch an ASROC due to mis-hearing a conversation.

kiryandil~: “ At least they didn’t roll out 9,000 LEOs and do a house-to-house search of two NY boroughs...”

I can hear it now ...Shades of the movie : “1945” and “The Russians are comming “

‘The Confederates are comming , .. the confederates are comming !’
‘Today New Haven ,.. tomorrow , Pawtuckett !!’

You really can’t blame the LEO for this, but the motorist who called in the tip. I mean, when someone calls and says that there a suspicious-looking object resembling a torpedo on the highways around the city, they can’t just ignore it and pretend that it didn’t happen.

They have to pretend like every threat is a real threat, just in case it is a real threat.

I thought this was a baseball story that somehow got mixed in with Hot Rod Hundley.
