Shazier announces Steelers pick!!!
I found my my father in law - a hamburger hill Viet Nam vet, laying face down after a terrible fall that left him with a spinal cord injury last October. He’s from Pittsburgh and is, in loving terms , a real Yinzer.
So to see Shazier walk down and be the ONLY player to announce a first round pick moved me in a big way. Some might see it as the NFL trying to beautify an ugly alspect of the sport. But I gotta say that I can only see a hero for my heroic father in law adding hope to so many wheelchair bound people that I am now so aware of.
So I just wanted to share this. It’s just another way that our ridiculous passion for seemingly meaningless sports actually transcends our otherwise divisive daily reality.
