(Newser) – What did expertly landing a plane on the Hudson River get “hero pilot” Chesley Sullenberger? “Hero sex,” says his wife. Lorrie Sullenberger tells Matt Lauer for Thursday’s People of the Year TV special that “the hero sex really helps a 20-year-old marriage,” the AP reports. “Rock star sex,” Sully adds. Other People of the Year for the NBC special include Taylor Swift, Nadya Suleman, Susan Boyle, and Kobe Bryant.
