    Wasn't able to watch it live because of work, but I saw it this morning via a friend's facebook posting. Wow. I mean, just wow. Steve's wife struck it home for me when she said "It's not the loss of body functions that gets me depressed, it's the fact that he's losing his speaking ability. That's what gets me so upset, that I might not be able to hear his voice anymore, or that he might not be able to talk to his son."

    I'm not married, nor have a child, but I soon will have all of that since I'm engaged. But man, Idk how I could go on living if I wasnt able to say a word to my beautiful children or lovely wife anymore. Which is why I thank God everyday for what he gives me man

    What a powerful story. We all like to think of ourselves as brave and selfless, but only in times of tragedy do we really find out what we are made of. Steve and his wife have definitely passed this test. Best of luck Gleason Family!

    My apologies to everyone. It was a stupid attempt at humor that backfired. Emphasis on stupid.

    The only "good" I can see coming out of all this is more awareness for ALS. Hopefully more money is raised for research.

    Steve Gleason is my hero. My father-in-law passed away from ALS. He was my wife's hero.

    Sometimes a little quality control is in order. If you think it's a funny idea...bounce it off a few people's heads to make sure it won't torpedo your career. In the creative process I'm sure this was a laugh riot...but now no one is laughing.
