First off, let me just say that Sick Baby is by far my least favorite baby. I had some great stuff to share with you guys this week but Sick Baby popped up and wrecked pretty much everything. Sick Baby is no joke, guys. Fortunately, Sick Baby has reverted back to his normally cheery King Baby self so with a little rest, next week is going to be awesome around here.
In the meantime, I present to you a great video short featured on ESPN's E:60 a few weeks ago. If you've never seen E:60before, it's basically a news magazine (think The CBS Sunday Morning Newswhich is also great) that chronicles important/inspirational stories related to the world of sports. It's an excellent program and you should watch it. I've been catching up on my E:60s today, which basically amounted to an entire day of weeping uncontrollably which is probably healthy, right? Anyway, I came across this video featuring Steve Gleason and the members of Pearl Jam. Gleason was a special teams standout for the New Orleans Saints in the last decade who has since been diagnosed with ALS. Pearl Jam is...well, Pearl Jam. Maybe the biggest rock band in the world and probably my personal favorite. Gleason and the band have become intertwined through Gleason's fundraising for ALS research and the band asked him to interview them in advance of their new album that came out last week (which is magnificent, by the way). Check out the video and be prepared for much weeping and gnashing of teeth.
