Penn State's Steve Smith still amazes from his hospital bed | #ALS AWARENESS #LouGehrigsDisease #PARKINSONS | Scoop.it

After 10 of the most heart-sinking and yet inspiring years, Steve Smith continues to amaze from the hospital bed in his living room.

The man who cannot eat still watches cooking shows endlessly on TV -- in hopes of learning the things he will create one day.

The man who cannot talk still jokes with his wife and scolds his kids -- by using his eyes to control a computer's voice-activated system.

And though he cannot walk -- cannot truly............

Sarah Hibbeln's curator insight, December 13, 2013 8:47 AM

This was cool!! It talked about if  your children should play football. What I got from it was football is in the top 3 most concussion sports! This kid was 4 years old and gave 4 or 5 kids a concussion or knocked them out. If I was the mother, if my child hit someone to the ground or knocked them out. I would get up and walk myself down there grab him and leave. Not cheer on for the little kid to do it again, like in the article. This article intersted me and is a good life lesson article.

Michael Lopez Jr. Celebration Of Life - Saying Good By to All American "Magic Mike"

★ Final Farewell To Mike Lopez Jr.★

It is hard to imagine anyone who followed football in Oregon in the 1980′s not remembering his name. It struck fear into many an opponent and his #19 was called and shouted often at Oregon State where he did some legendary things. He was one of the greatest athletes to every come out of Oregon and was an All American and named Gatorade Player Of The Year. The 1981 Graduate of Aloha was truly special in every way and was known by those closest to him as “Magic Mike”! ♥
