Former Navy SEAL who claimed he killed Osama bin Laden loves Mississippi State

Former Navy SEAL Robert J. O’Neill—best known for claiming he fired the shots that killed Osama bin Laden in May 2011—was born and raised in Montana. Apparently, that didn’t stop him from becoming a Mississippi State fan.

When a Twitter follower asked O’Neill Sunday night which SEC team is his favorite, he quickly proclaimed his love for the Bulldogs not too long after the team landed a bid to play Louisville in the TaxSlayer Bowl.

Though his ties to Mississippi State, if any, are unclear, #HailState Nation would undoubtedly accept him with open arms.
