Jimmy Graham Talked To His Biggest Fan Today On ESPN, And It Was Wonderful

First of all, onions. Second of all, good job, ESPN.

On Tuesday afternoon, SportsCenter organized a televised phone call between 7-year-old Lexia Woods and her favorite player, Jimmy Graham. It was Lexia’s heartbreaking video that took the internet by storm last week, as she told the world about her love and adoration for Graham, who was traded to Seattle.

Jimmy Graham’s message to Lexia:

“Like I said on Facebook, wherever I go you go so I’m excited to bring you and your whole family to Seattle so we can experience my first game together. It’s going to be awesome and I really look forward to it. Thank you so much for being my #1 fan.

Thank you for all your love. That was one of the biggest moments of my life and you made it that much more special to know that someone cares about me that much. I look forward to seeing you in Seattle.”

Lexia’s dad serves in the military, but she hopes he can make it to the game. All in all, this is a pretty wonderful story. Good job, everyone!
