Steve Gleason delivers the comedic line of the Super Bowl



This guy is great.

http://www.nola.com/superbowl/index....oice_to_a.html

Quote:
It took a moment for the Super Bowl XLVII media members in conference room 271 to make sense of what it was hearing on Wednesday at the Morial Convention Center. About 100 people sat quietly as a monotone voice filtered through the microphone from the guy in the wheelchair up on stage.

It sounded like former New Orleans Saints player Steve Gleason but it lacked the inflection and enthusiasm that marks Gleason.

His eyes scanned the computer in front of him as he focused in on the word he wanted to say. As soon as the computer got the drift, a prerecorded Gleason voice came out, uttering his selected word.

But even if Gleason's voice wasn't quite the same -- his replies were.

“What is most humbling you ask? To be honest, having someone else wash my balls,” Gleason said eliciting eye-tearing laughter and applause from the reporters gathered for his press conference.

“Anything else?” he added with perfect comedic timing.

I don't find it funny, at all.

If you've never helped a disabled person, it's embarrassing and maddening for THAT PERSON, not the person assisting.

Steve meant it to be funny, and it was.

I don't think so.

It's a very humbling moment on his behalf and if you took it as funny, I'd suggest you help a disabled person, as I have, to find the humor in the situation.

Have a HS classmate dying of the same thing. It's maddening and humbling. But he has a great sense of humor about it and he demands that he's not treated differently so I crack jokes about wanting to take him to an amusement park so we all get head of the line privs. It really depends on the person, I think. I don't think he has another year in him because he's opted not to some of those life extending things that give you a couple extra years but your quality of life is zero.

I was friends with people in junior high and high school with ALS and other issues. I helped out as much as possible, bathing, wiping, whatever. I can pretty much assure anyone that it wasn't funny. There's a loss of dignity when you have to rely on someone, especially at an early age, for things that we all take for granted.

What I've learned since then is to never treat anyone with a disability any differently than I treat anyone else. Look them directly in the eye and never feel sorry for them, because the last thing people with disabilities, at least in my experience want, is sympathy.

So while I think Gleason is trying to deal with this as best he can, he probably cries at night because people have to wipe his balls.

It's just not funny.

If it wasn't a joke, he would've found a message regarding appropriate way to say it...
