Arthur Blank said:
"Steve Gleason's story touched me as a father and recent cancer survivor," Blank said. "Stories like his bring into focus what is truly important. His story is about a life that was dramatically changed by a disease, and how he has courageously chosen to face it. It's about family and what is most important in life -- more important than any game, any play or any rivalry ever will be."

Wow!

Now that's something! Steve Gleason turns Arthur Blank into a decent human being... at least for a moment. That's a monumental accomplishment for any human being.

Taking action instead of just lip service. Humble move by Count Chocula ..
May he find some measure of happiness balanced against all the misery that fowl organization must have caused him.

Like others have said, some things are bigger than football. Mad respect to Mr. Blank.

But I still hate the falcons with every atom of my being.

As much as I love to rip Arthur this was a complete class move by him. Thank you Arthur for helping the Gleason's! However I still want the Saints to beat your team on the field twice a year.
