When I was driving home from the Ranger Game on Friday night I heard that they would be doing a phone interview with Ben Fanelli during the broadcast of the Saturday night game on 570 News. I couldn't wait to find out how he was really doing.
Amanda found a Facebook group that you could post well wishes on and I snagged this photo from there.
This is a photo from a fan at the game.
Here is a longer video of the hit. I still get a sick feeling in my stomach when I watch it.
This is the interview that they played on TV. I was thrilled to see that he seemed to be recovering well. I was also happy to hear that he didn't remember the hit. He still has not actually watched it either. I hope he never remembers that night.
