It seems like, instead of watching from a hospital bed, Chuck Pagano will be cheering from the comfort of his home next week. According to the Associated Press, Pagano was released before kickoff, and watched the game at home. My favourite quote:
"I'm thrilled to hear that. I'm more thrilled about that than the win," Luck said of the news about Pagano.
I think we all feel the same way. As a Colts fan, or any fan for that matter, it's easy lose focus on what's important; Chuck Pagano put a name and face to the humanity behind the NFL. He's cheering for his team. We're cheering for him.
