GBGC #66: Anniversary Edition - Don't Stop (Fighting Terrorism)

In 1994, David Hasselhoff’s big pay-per-view comeback concert was scheduled to be televised on the very same night that O.J. Simpson happened to be fleeing police in a white Bronco. All eyes were on O.J. and Hasselhoff’s comeback was thwarted. 
On this day, the first anniversary on Grahamophone’s Bad Guitar Channel, the world awoke to the news that Osama bin Laden had been found and killed in Abbottabad, Pakistan. 
I suppose people will be glued to the television news instead of perusing the archives of the GBGC, and the number of views on YouTube will be significantly lower than I projected. But I will persevere. Unlike Hasselhoff, I will try to refrain from sinking into a drunken stupor (if I do, I will of course videotape it, and then maybe one of my videos will finally go viral).
I will not be beaten by terrorists! 
After all, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, Baywatch is the world’s most-watched television program. As a result, Hasselhoff’s fortune allegedly amounts to 100 million dollars.
The world’s most loathed enemy may have usurped my ratings today, but I won’t stop thinking about tomorrow. Yesterday’s gone. Yesterday’s gone.
