At 1:45 into the video Bo tells the story of being in the cockpit when an engine failed. It's interesting to me as the subject of the discussion.
 
He got most of the story right; Midnight, FL370, compressor #3 bearing caused the engine failure and we landed in Des Moines, IA. Didn't see any birds up there.
 
There were quite a few news reports, this was my favorite:
•Spoken Like a True Ballplayer
On a flight from Ontario, Calif., to Chicago in the early morning of Sept. 16, one of the two engines on the White Sox's chartered plane blew out, causing the plane to make an emergency landing in Des Moines. "I thought we were going to die," said White Sox pitcher Charlie Hough. "I was ticked, because it was only two days from payday."
