Yet sometimes sports can act as that comfort zone for those who are truly in life-and-death situations.
Enter: Justin Perales.
Perales is a seven year-old Eagles fan who suffered a brain aneurysm and was placed into a coma due to multiple brain surgeries. Well, as we said earlier, Justin is an Eagles fan and he wasn't going to let a coma stop him from cheering for his beloved Eagles.
Just two weeks after waking up from a coma, the brave youngster was rattling off answers to questions about his birds and singing the Eagles Fight Song.
From everyone here at Whiz Wit, get well soon Justin. We expect to see you at the Linc cheering on the birds!
