You’re probably familiar with Eric LeGrand, the Rutgers lineman who was paralyzed in a 2010 game against Army. LeGrand has been lauded for his positive, upbeat attitude despite the injury, receiving numerous awards along the way including the Jimmy V Award for Perseverance at the 2012 ESPYs.
Overall, LeGrand’s a great kid with a great sense of humor, which is why he can make a joke about something like this without hesitation.
Yes, that’s the exact moment LeGrand was paralyzed—and he used it to make a Beyonce meme—because Beyonce’s performance was otherwordly. That takes a special kind of dude.
With my last tweet you guys can see that I have a sense of humor with my injury gotta enjoy life and laugh I know that cracked me up lol
