So after tonight's awesome win I went on facebook and posted a status saying, "Jason Pierre-Paul and Eli Manning are both my heroes" to congratulate the Giants two MVPs of the game...I swear I will lose all faith in this website if they do not receive Kudos, but I digress. I then went on twitter and then found something very unsettling and actually made me sick. (After the jump)
A Cowboys fan was whining about how the Cowboys suck because of Rex Ryan, Jason Gerrett, and Tony Romo. I get that, that is normal whatever.
Then however he sent a tweet to Mark Herzlich, and I quote "@MarkHerzlich .. STFU HERZLICH .. HOPE YOUR CANCER COMES BACK"
WTF! Cancer is not something that you just shout out at someone after his team beats you! Yeah, last year when Desean Jackson ran back that kick against the Giants I swore that I was going to find him and break his legs, but cancer?!
Mark Herzlich is a hero and an inspiration. I have been a Giants fan my whole life and I am currently a freshman at Boston College. Three years ago my best friend/brother was diagnosed with a type of sarcoma cancer, like Mark Herzlich. He too was a Giants fan. I showed footage of Herzlich to my friend, Ryan, and explained to him how Herzlich was diagnosed with sarcoma just like him. This past February Ryan passed away at the age of 18. Mark Herzlich has been an inspiration and hero of mine ever since. I was beyond thrilled this summer when my brother called me, while I was working at a camp with Autistic children, to tell me that Herzlich signed with the Giants. For Christmas I hope to receive Mark Herzlich's jersey, which I will proudly wear.
Mark, if by chance you do find yourself on Big Blue View, know that we love you and wish you the best, not just on the playing field, but also in your health. You are a true hero.
