Great Article on Steve Gleason



LINK

quote:

We don't know much about ALS, but I can tell you this: The disease picked the wrong guy when it invaded the brain and spinal cord of Steve Gleason


quote:

As the tape played, Fujita leaned over and wiped saliva from Gleason's chin with a handkerchief. He did it several times, because they're good friends. They have been almost since the day Fujita first laid eyes on Gleason before the 2006 season, Fujita's first with the Saints.

First day of training camp, Fujita spots something strange. He asks a teammate, "Who's that long-haired guy in the crazy, freakish yoga position?"

Came the answer: "That's Steve Gleason."

Said Fujita: "I knew we were going to get along."




Good stuff in the article. This new video was included as well. Lots of NFL stars contributed.

One of the most inspiring people I've ever met. I get choked up every time I read articles about the guy or see him speak (or used to speak) at events. Truly an inspiration.

You know what I meant. Speak with his actual voice, not a machine.

Thanks for posting this. Gives me not only a great appreciation for Gleason but for Fujita as well.

I'd love to see Fuji come back to New Orleans and to the Saints when his playing days are over.

No doubt. Fujita is one of my favorite people just in the NFL.
