Fisher, Bruschi reach Kilimanjaro summit

A group of hikers including Jeff Fisher, Tedy Bruschi, and former Eagles tight end Chad Lewis reached the peak of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania Africa on Wednesday, completing a climb that took an entire week.

The notable NFL names were joined by four injured military members, as the climb was done to help raise awareness for the Wounded Warrior Project and their “Believe in Heroes” Campaign.

The picture above to the right, courtesy of the Wounded Warriors, features Bruschi on the far left, holding up one of the hikers’ prosthetic leg.  We congratulate the group on making the 19,000 foot summit and wish them luck on the way down.

    Rashard Mendenhall just tweeted this:

    “We’ll never know what really happened. I just have a hard time believing a man with a prosthetic leg could climb that mountain.”

    More importantly did Fisher’s porn stash make it to the top?

    That sounds MUCH, MUCH more dangerous than riding a bull.
    Just wanted to point out the hypocrisy.

    shackdelrio is a moron, comparing a dude with a prosthetic leg to a guy that allegedly blew up buildings with planes when he was in a US hospital only a month or so before hand all while making NORAD stand down from a cave in Afghanistan…not to mention all the changing of the stories on his assassination…and “you’re” laughing at “him”? People with commonsense everywhere laugh at sheep such as yourself and every mindless drone that clicked thumbs up.

    I’m just glad that they clarified it was a prosthetic leg. I thought Bruschi went all “Alive,” consumed a man and was just holding up his leftovers.

    Forget to take your meds today?…….Lighten up. .He didn’t compare anybody to anybody….You might think what you say here matters, but in the end Bozo…..It doesn’t….Hate to break that to ya, now go have mommy make ya a hot dog…. After all the world ends on saturday………….Right?

    Great cause, and just another example of NFL players doing something positive. Sadly, the real story here is that taxpayers spend $850 Billion dollars a year for defense, yet we have to raise money to take care of wounded soldiers.

    shackdelrio – LOL that’s pretty funny.

    darthhitman – I’m LOLing at you too! Give it up man, seriously. Santa Claus isn’t real. I question everything but Alex Jones isn’t always right.

    WTH? Believe in Herpes?

    Oh…sorry…wasn’t wearing my glasses. Believe in HEROES. Yeah, that sounds good.

    Darth – Remember the judge said you could stay out of the hosital as long as you were taking your meds. Clearly, you’ve skipped a few days. Time to take your pills, sweetie. You’ll feel better in a few hours.
