Here Is A Nice Thing: Hearing-Impaired Little Girl Writes To Derrick Coleman

01.23.14 4 years ago 36 Comments


With two weeks of seemingly endless Super Bowl hype mostly focusing on the dumb things people have to say about Richard Sherman’s interview, Pete Carroll’s 9/11 truther views and all-around Peyton Manning tongue-bathing by the media, it’s good to celebrate just one nice thing. So let’s do that. Last week, we featured the Duracell commercial that featured the story of the Seahawks’ Derrick Coleman, the only deaf offensive player in the history of the NFL.

After seeing that ad with her identical twin sister, Riley Kovalcik, a 9-year-old hearing impaired girl from New Jersey, wrote this letter to Coleman:

Dear my insperation Derrick Coleman,

I know how you feel. I also have hearing aids. Just try your best. I have faif in you Derrick good Job on January 20th game. Go seattle seahalwks! here are things we have in comen:

Good stuff. And Ms. Kovalcik knows, as PFT Commenter will tell you, it’s about telling, not spelling.
