Gotta say watching both the young boy fighting cancer from St Judes and Steve Gleason, former saints safety tragically stricken with ALS, get to come up on stage and announce a pick was great...very moving. Seeing Gleason in a wheelchair having seen him play is terrible but it was amazing seeing him communicate using a pc and his eyes! and the standing ovation he received was touching, really wonderful

These are just subtle reminders of the way sports and "real" life connect and intersect and how much they mean to us fans after all is said and done-when these moments happened there are no Pats fans, Giants fans, Jets fans....just Fans and that's the best part of all
