Steve Gleason interviews Pearl Jam in emotional ESPN Segment

Music and sports don’t often find themselves together, but when they do it’s beautiful.

Steve Gleason was a safety for the New Orleans Saints, known mostly for his blocked punt in 2006 that was used as a symbol for the resurgence of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast. In 2011 he was diagnosed with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.

Given two to five years to live, Gleason could have let the disease take away his life, but instead, he has decided to do the best with the cards dealt to him. He maintains a role in the Saints’ organization, and has started his own organization to help find a cure for ALS.

Through his life and journey, the band of Pearl Jam has always been an inspiration to keep living his life to the fullest. ESPN showed and interview Gleason did with Pearl Jam last Sunday.

Watch it below:

I’m a huge fan of Pearl Jam and have had their music become an inspirational part of my life and it has healed my wounds in the past. For that reason I couldn’t help but tear up while watching this. It’s a perfect example of the happiness Pearl Jam’s music has given its fans. But most importantly, it shows how music can help overcome life’s biggest personal obstacles.
