Let This Blind & Deaf High School Athlete Inspire You To Be Better On This Tuesday Morning

F*ck Tim Tebow — this kid is the truth. Marvin Pearson is easily the most inspiring athlete I’ve ever seen. Here I am getting all bent out of shape when I don’t get laid on a Saturday night or the Jets don’t cover, and here comes this saint just having an absolute happy-go-lucky attitude about losing two of his most important senses.

By the time he was 10 years old, Marvin Pearson was blind and had lost most of his hearing. Today, he’s scoring touchdowns and has plans to go to either Temple U or Kutztown. What a magnificent kid. Wishing him all the best.

In typical Ellen fashion, she hooked him up big time with a VIP trip to a New Orleans Saints game and a $10,00 check. Ellen is the best. Marvin is the best. I’m just average.
