    • In Tanner We Trust says:

      I had the game muted in the background and I look up to see everyone huddled around looking broken. I assumed worst case scenario it was a gruesome leg injury like Kevin Ware or Gordon Hayward. Insane to think millions of people almost watched a player die on the field. Makes you appreciate life.
