Charlie May Be an Even Bigger Hero Than We Think


We all saw the debacle of a cover from the New York Daily News yesterday that tried to portray Eagles employee Charlie as celebrating Victor Cruz's injury. Most recognized it as crap, and noted how Charlie actually was praying for Cruz once he realized the receiver was hurt. I even made a face-breaking photoshop to mock the absurdity of it all:

omg ZWR you rule

Well, here's some more info that hints at just how good of a guy he is. According to this caller to the Jon and Sean Show (go to the 1:51 mark) Charlie

TOOK A WEEK-LONG LEAVE OF ABSENCE FROM WORK TO VOLUNTEER IN NEW YORK CITY AFTER SEPTEMBER 11

I'll try to get some more info on this, but I wanted it out there because what that newspaper did to this man is wrong.

  1. I love the donkey deadspin reader that replied to your brilliant photoshop. He must not be bolg-aware.


    Eagles101: "Umm I have to disagree and let me guess you are a giants fan well the guy was celebrating because he didn't catch it not because he was hurt."

  2. Charlie was my high school athletic director. We had an assembly where he shared with his experience of jumping a ferry into the city as everyone else was trying to get out. He shared with us his firefighters equipment that fdny gave to volunteers, which had shown signs of melting from the extreme heat.
