Gleason Jerseys for Charity?

Like everyone, I was crushed to hear the news that Steve Gleason had Lou Gehrig's disease. I always felt that Steve was the bedrock of our Special Teams during his time with the Saints - it was hard to run back a big kick return, because #37 was usually there to say hello!

He was our hero of the storied Falcons game with his famous blocked punt. As such, I think it's time we gave a little love back by wearing his jersey ... trouble is, I can't find one.

I suggest that Steve's #37 be made available for purchase, with proceeds going to ALS awareness and/or Team Gleason. I feel that a true New Orleans Saints hero deserves true New Orleans support! Anyone with me?

For your convenience, here is the website for ALS awareness:

Homepage - ALS Association

And for more on Steve, here is the website for Team Gleason:

Team Gleason | Better Now Than Never


Truly,
MarylandSaint

I think we should get an online petition going and then submit it to the new orleans saints organization.

A "better now than never" T-shirt is coming. Better Now Than Never @ Dirty Coast : Nice New Orleans Shirts & Apparel

But count me in the number that would spring for a Gleason 37 jersey if the proceeds went to a good cause of Steve's choice.

I emailed the suggestion to neworleanssaints.com. I even mentioned the T-Shirt idea from BOOBOO. We'll see if they heard me, but I think that we need to push this!

houstoons is an unknown quantity at this point
I was thinking about a jersey this morning. I think on the back it would be cool if it said TEAM GLEASON. I would for sure buy one and wear it proudly!

I think another good idea for a jersey would be to have some sort of ALS awareness patch or something of the sort..
