    Everyone put it on CBS now, they're interviewing him and it seems to be a good one. :)

    After you get done watching, give those of us at work without televisions a quick run-down, please.


    Miracles do happen... See Kevin Everett.

    Sowwie. :(

    It really wasn't anything special. It was just the same tear jerker story, and most of it was a recap of what happened. They did go through in detail of what happened, what his steps were in rehab, and exactly were his injury took place.

    The doctor told him he had like a 1-2 percent chance of walking again. He walked on stage and everyone cheered.

    They also talked to the guy Everett was trying to tackle a little bit. He said it was his first game, and he was very excited until Everett was laying on the ground not moving. He felt really bad about it, too. I felt kinda bad for the guy. It was his first NFL game and something like that happens to you.

    It was really only like 15 minutes long. But it still made me shed a tear. lol

    Sorry if I'm rather vague on what exactly what happened in the show. It's like 9 hours later.

    "Good Morning America" and "Nightline" both have great pieces on his story.

    His doctor made a life saving decision to lower his body's temperature and also his neurosurgeon agreed with that.

    His story is amazing! Thank God for the miracles this young man is seeing daily happen in his life and for the doctors who have restored his ability to walk.

    The sad part to me is him talking about him being able to hear his teammates telling him to get up and he was trying to but couldn't.

    I do believe he has a wonderful attitude as well...and loving family support.

    yea the show didn't live up to expectations...they only gave vague details that have been in the press alot. I was hoping for something exculsive. I may go out and get his book tho
