    Nice story about a guy who didn't give up despite a lot of adversity.

    Here's a link to his new Duracell commercial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u2HD57z4F8E

    The Duracell commercial is by far my favorite commercial airing right now. Coleman is an impressive young man.

    Oh gosh, I'm so bitterly disappointed because I thought this thread title was going to announce the NFLs first legally married gay. Dang, guess we'll just have to wait a while longer, huh ?

    I know you were just trying to be funny but the actor is hearing.

    OK you are right, not too cool on my part. But it's just that the media (especially the "LA wing" of the national media) is so caught up in their crusade about iden tifying and then actively sponsering a gay(s) in a major sport like NFL football or NBA basketball, it gets tiresome and I made an "inappropriate"/dumb remark.
    Deafness ? I've got some issues in that area myself. I'm not deaf, certainly not legally deaf, but it seems to be leaving me rapidly and they've got to repeat lots of things for me, again and again it would seem. But I'm sorry for being insensitive here, as you said we'll just chalk it up to being "not a very bright fella". My sincere apology if I offended.

    While I don't support Gay Marriage, I'm tired of trumpeting the firsts of all divisive labels. First Yankee to coach the Texan's. News at Seven!

    It get's annoying.
