Inspirational Documentary About Steve Gleason Airs Tonight

September 26, 2006 was a night I’ll remember for the rest of my life. The Saints returned home to the Louisiana Superdome after spending the entire ’05 season on the road.
It was a Monday night matchup with division rival Atlanta. Steve Gleason blocked a Falcon punt into the end zone on the game’s fourth play, and the rout was on.
Steve was diagnosed with ALS in January 2011.

He’s been proactive in dealing with the disease, refusing to  play the role of victim, and forming Team Gleason to raise awareness, and help others affected by the debilitating illness.
The NFL Network will air a documentary about his efforts tonight at 9:30 Central time. It will re-air at 2 pm, Wednesday on NFL Network, and Thursday, at 1:30 am on ESPN2. He will be tweeting live during tonight’s broadcast.
The program will also document a trip he and former teammate Scott Fujita took to Machu Picchu, Peru in April.  The Gleason Gras fundraiser, held at Champions Square on Sept. 6th will also be featured.
Gleason retired from the Saints in 2008, and lives in New Orleans with his wife, Michel. They have one son,Rivers.

The word Hero gets over used when we talk about our favorite sports figures. Not in this case.
