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.

Via Cleveland.com:

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.
