Yeah, so Josh Tomlin got lit up by the Cubs in Game 6. That’s not the story here. The real story at Game 6 happened when Josh’s dad, Jerry, was shown slamming a Bud Light. Why is that a story? Because Jerry was partially paralyzed in August due to a spinal cord condition. Jerry was released from a rehab facility on Oct. 19 and here he is getting a little Bud circulating through the system. Now that’s my kinda man right there.
The night before Game 3, Tomlin spent time with his father for the first time since he returned home in mid-August. At that time, his father was diagnosed with an arteriovenous malformation, a tangle of blood vessels on his spinal cord, which required emergency surgery.
And then there’s this.
It’s unknown if Jerry, who is confined to a wheelchair, will walk again.
But you’re not going to stop my guy Jerry from having a beer. No sir. There are still real men out there, we just have to notice them and then praise them for going on with life. Jerry’s like f-it, my son’s getting two starts in the World Series, I’m going to enjoy every single minute of this.
Good for Jerry.
