  • Congratulations, you got married since I saw you last.

  • Your wife is in the audience.

  • Yeah,there she is.

  • Hi.

  • OK, so you played for the Philadelphia Eagles.

  • You were traded to the New Orleans Saints.

  • Which of course, I was excited about.

  • Were you sad or were you happy to be traded to the Saints?

  • Well, so the organization came to me

  • and said they wanted to make a change.

  • Which, that's the nature of the beast.

  • So I was like, hey, it is what it is, and just let me know.

  • And they said the New Orleans Saints want to trade

  • and they offered a draft pick.

  • And I'm not making this up.

  • First thing I thought of is, wait,

  • that's Ellen's favorite team.

  • And then I said, hold on, she's got

  • a Drew Brees Jersey over there.

  • Which then means maybe Drew and I can do a piece for Ellen.

  • I was like--

  • It's a win-win.

  • --hey let's do this.

  • It's time, yeah, it's time.

  • And so, OK, so I was excited to hear that.

  • So then you get a physical.

  • You get a physical when you start a new team like that.

  • And tell everyone what happened.

  • So I played in the preseason game.

  • And the day after that, I finished my physical.

  • And the New Orleans Saints doctor

  • put a stethoscope to my back.

  • I took three breaths.

  • And he said, you a heart murmur, but it's not good.

  • And so we're going to send you to the hospital.

  • And you're going to get an echocardiogram.

  • And, I'll be honest with you, I was like, all right,

  • we're good.

  • Let's do this, right?

  • So I get to the hospital and I take my test.

  • I go back to the facility.

  • I'm going to wait a few hours.

  • And I was sitting in the locker room before practice.

  • I get a call.

  • I answer it and it was a surgeon and the cardiologist

  • and they said hey, we don't really know how to say this,

  • but long story short, you're never playing football ever

  • again.

  • And you're going to be in emergency heart surgery pretty

  • quick.

  • So we're going to have you come back back down here and take

  • a few more tests.

  • Basically, what I had is, as my heart was pumping blood out,

  • a lot of blood was leaking back in.

  • So it was working really hard.

  • And right above that, you have an aorta, which is,

  • in layman's terms, it's the vein that

  • pumps all the blood around.

  • Well that was expanding like a water balloon.

  • And so your aorta should be about that big.

  • And mine was the size of coke can.

  • And they basically told me, you know,

  • had you been hit in the chest on Monday Night Football,

  • the odds were far greater that you would die than live.

  • And so I said, holy cow, so my wife and I,

  • we got on the phone.

  • We talked to surgeons all over the country.

  • And somehow their road, their path all

  • started with Dr. Bavaria at the University of Penn

  • hospital learning this procedure.

  • And so we chose Philadelphia.

  • And there you go.

  • OK.

  • And this happened--

  • How many weeks ago did you have open heart surgery?

  • I think we're at 6 1/2, seven weeks ago.

  • Yeah.

  • I mean, all right, so, you're--

  • you're just an incredibly inspiring human being

  • and positive all the time.

  • Your life is a crazy story.

  • And you're so positive all the time.

  • And there's this story about a penny.

  • You have to tell the story.

  • You're going to make me cry.

  • So, when I was a kid I lost my Mom.

  • And my aunt and my grandmother raised me.

  • They said every time that they'd find a penny,

  • they think of my Mom.

  • And so, I never find pennies.

  • I never find them.

  • I get them, you know, I get change.

  • And I'm the guy that always finds my pennies

  • and I always throw them.

  • And I think that my aunt or grandma or somebody

  • will find the penny and think of somebody they love.

  • So I'm in the hospital.

  • I get all this news.

  • And I find out I'm having emergency open heart surgery.

  • My career is over.

  • And I go to the elevator.

  • And going down-- it was the cleanest floor,

  • it was like your floor, it's the cleanest floor I've ever seen--

  • and when I hit the down button on the elevator, I looked down.

  • And right by my toe was a brand new penny.

  • And it's the only one that I picked up

  • and I didn't re-throw.

  • I kept that one.

  • And that's-- that's it right there.

  • So I took my phone out.

  • Nobody's going to believe this.

  • And sure enough, man, there it was.

  • Wow.

  • And I, you know, I believe in that right there.

  • Yeah.

  • I believe in that.

  • I do, too.

  • I absolutely do.

  • So not-- I want to say how did your outlook change.

  • But you've always been positive.

  • But what has shifted since this news and since the surgery?

  • Well, you know, I think, one, my wife keeps me going.

  • And two, the power of self-talk.

  • You know, I'd look in the mirror.

  • And sure enough, I would tell myself,

  • every day at the hospital, I'd go to the bathroom

  • and I'd say, hey, you're going to stand up.

  • You're going to hold your head high.

  • You're going to be proud.

  • And you've got this.

  • Because let me tell you, I was a professional athlete

  • on top of the world.

  • And part about being a professional athlete

  • is you kind of morph into this alter ego, if you will,

  • to do what you do.

  • And you think you're invincible.

  • And you find out you're not.

  • So get tested.

  • Look at your heart.

  • Get your kids' hearts tested.

  • Because if anybody thought he was perfect health-wise,

  • it was we.

  • Man far from it, so.

  • Yeah.

  • And as you told me, I think, when I texted you,

  • you said a Saint saved your life.

  • Ah, dude.

  • I mean really, literally, a Saint saved your life.

  • Yeah, yeah.

  • I love you.

  • So you have a new addition to your family

  • that you were boasting and bragging

  • about during the break.

  • And it's mean to say to someone whose dog does not behave well

  • to act like your dog is perfect.

  • Oh, come on, look at that little guy!

  • And his name is?

  • All right, so I got traded to New Orleans.

  • And I told myself that a Saint saved my life.

  • So my wife found this dog.

  • And I said, baby, that's ours.

  • And his name's Saint.

  • And you're-- so--

  • hold on, hold on, hold on, so--

  • I mean this with my whole heart.

  • My wife's my angel.

  • And that little guy right there is my Saint.

  • He's ador-- look at that!

  • Anyway, he's adorable.

  • I got you a gift.

  • First of all, I want you to come back as often as you--

  • I mean, listen, you got free time now.

  • I want you here as much as possible.

  • He's an amazing magician.

  • Which he was supposed to do a trick today,

  • and we ran out of time.

  • I want you to come back whenever you want.

  • You know, we're doing 12 days of giveaways.

  • Come back and help me with that.

  • Oh, yes.

  • Yes.

  • I had a gift for you.

  • This is for Saint.

  • It's made out of cards because you're a magician, see?

  • Get out of town.

  • Come on.

  • Yes.

  • So that's my stuff from PetSmart.

  • You can get it at PetSmart.

  • And this is-- because you're a magician,

  • it's made out of cards.

  • And that's Saint's--

  • This is the coolest thing ever.

  • Isn't it great?

  • Hold on, hold on, I want to get in this thing.

  • No, you can't get in there.

  • No, you can't.

Congratulations, you got married since I saw you last.
