A Silent Sunday Offering.

I call this one, “Worlds Collide: When The Hook Met Jack Bauer.”

Seriously, on a recent visit to NYC I met members of the NYPD’s counter-terrorism unit (CTU), and in spite of my daughter’s words of caution (“These guys don’t mess around… they’re going to shoot you, Skippy!”) I asked them to pose for a photo. One of these true heroes obliged this pasty, lanky Canadian.

The rest is blogging history.

Enjoy, kids.


Fun Fact: I’m carrying a Jack Bauer-style bag. #SuperNerd


See you in the lobby, friends…

About The Hook

Husband. Father. Bellman. Author of The Bellman Chronicles. Reader of comic books and observer and chronicler of the human condition. And to my wife's eternal dismay, a mere mortal and non-vampire. I'm often told I look like your uncle, cousin, etc. If I wore a hat, I'd hang it on a hat rack in my home in Niagara Falls, Canada. You can call me The Hook, everyone else does.

  1. Awww, I miss 24. Hanging on the edge of my seat for every last second to tick by…that was TV! Did you check out the new version they tried in the spring? I watched some of the clips but, with out Jack Bauer it just wasn’t right. I’m jealous of your picture.

    Now the NYPD CTU has your picture in your files too. Just in case, you know, to keep tabs on a “bellman” who keeps complaining about low tips but keeps flying in to NYC with barely any luggage to apparently case the area around Broadway.

  3. Nice to see you, Robert. Glad to see you weren’t shot.

      Aww, you’re such a sweetie, Robyn!
      I was thinking of you today; the hotel is hosting a First Nations health conference. The guests have all been pretty cool.
      It’s a nice change from the not-so-normal…

    Fantastic pic my friend.

  5. Doug in Oakland says:

    So did you bring any Canadian terrorism for him to counter? Just asking for a friend…

  6. Excellent idea to stop in at the CTU place. Never hurts to know those guys

    Glad you are getting more comfortable on camera 🙂 So do you watch Designated Survivor? It’s interesting seeing “Bauer” as President…as a matter of fact, I wish he would take the real job!
