Good Things Still Happen

There is always the danger of becoming morbidly cynical, deteriorating into utter despair and writing off the human race. Luckily, every time that appears to be the only avenue left, something happens to make you realize there’s still hope.

Eric LeGrand, the Rutgers football player that was paralyzed in 2010 in a game against Army at the Meadowlands has been hired by Subway to appear in commercials with Giants star Justin Tuck.

LeGrand, clearly, is not letting a little thing like not being able to walk slow him down. He’s spitting in the eye of misfortune and living his life. LeGrand would like to break into the sports media world and has vowed to walk again.

I’m betting he manages both of those things.
