Shout Out To This Partially Paralyzed Dude Who Was Crushing Beers At The World Series


Let’s forget about the fact that Josh Tomlin was Cleveland’s starting pitcher last night and he got absolutely rocked and blew a chance at a World Series trophy for the city of Cleveland. Let’s forget about that for a second. That isn’t why we’re here. We are here to sing the praises of Josh Tomlin’s father, Jerry Tomlin. America just met Jerry Tomlin and he’s already a legend.


The night before Game 3, Tomlin spent time with his father for the first time since he returned home in mid-August. At that time, his father was diagnosed with an arteriovenous malformation, a tangle of blood vessels on his spinal cord, which required emergency surgery.

It’s unknown if Jerry, who is confined to a wheelchair, will walk again.

But in classic Jerry Tomlin fashion, wheelchair-bound disease be damned, he was going to crush some beers while watching his son pitch in the World Series.
