Bryan Stow writes his name

This ceased to be a baseball story a long damn time ago. And maybe it’s no longer properly in HBT’s jurisdiction. But I kinda don’t care. Sometimes you just have to highlight the fact that there’s some hope in this mean old world and, for whatever reason, Bryan Stow’s progress represents hope to me right now.

Anyway:  Bryan Stow’s family has updated their blog about Stow’s progress and recovery and today they have some interesting and encouraging news: Stow has written his own name. There’s a picture of it there.

This isn’t miracle territory — I don’t believe in those — and I’m too hard headed to get too caught up on some emotional level by these sorts of reports. But it is great news given how dire some of the reports of his prognosis were several months ago.

    Keep these updates coming. Please. And thank you.

    I think the vast majority of us recognize hbt as an excellent clearing house for the gambit of baseball related news/updates so thank you for keeping your radar tuned to the broader baseball world.

    your comments contradict the story in the sense if you really didn’t believe in miracles or wasn’t emotionally attatched to the story….you wouldn’t of typed it..bottom line…its ok to admit your emotionally attatched to something,especially something like this.your no less of a man.but you are less of a man for not being able to admit it

      Not true, bigtrav. It is very easy to follow a story and be interested in the progress and outcome yet not be emotionally invested, or believe in miracles. I feel the same way Craig does.

      What I’m saying is, maybe we shouldn’t question someones manhood because they are interested in a story for reasons that you don’t understand.

    Nice bit of news to start my day here out west. I hope the updates keep coming, too. He’s a baseball fan, like us. As far as I’m concerned he’s an honorary commenter (I choose to consider that an honor at any rate).

    Way to promote your non-spiritual beliefs yet again…

    Great news nonetheless. Thanks for the update.
