Watch this awesome Steve Gleason Pearl Jam feature story

Former New Orleans Saints special teams standout Steve Gleason continues to inspire the masses with his courageous fight against ALS.  Gleason has been the subject of several feature length stories and television segments, but this one that aired Sunday on ESPN about Gleason's relationship with Pearl Jam is one of the most touching.  Not just with regards to Gleason, it's one of the better segments you'll see on a sports network this year.

Seeing Eddie Vedder get choked up talking to Steve Gleason about his father, wow, it's getting a little dusty in here.  ESPN has been at its best lately with these kind of heartwarming, in-depth features and this is no different.  It's just a remarkable piece of storytelling.
