Fleet Week Ends; Woman's Mystery Sailor Turns Up Married With Kids
Ah, Fleet Week is now over. Ships and service members, and all those clean, white uniforms, are departing our fair city in droves. If you didn't snag a sailor this time, you've got a year to perfect your advances for Fleet Week 2011. Tip: Ask them to take a photo with you! They like that. If that doesn't work, take your top off.
Meanwhile, the New York City bus driver who set eyes upon her dream sailor "with the most beautiful smile" on her way to work on Friday has located him with the help of Navy officials and 1010 WINS. Because everyone loves love.
Turns out, he's married to his high school sweetheart and has three kids. The good ones are always taken, aren't they? But Yvonne and Larry will always have New York, the USS Iwo Jima, and that awkward cheek peck in front of a bunch of reporters. Swoon.
