Brian McGrattan (Sarah Fuqua) 2

During the first intermission of Saturday night’s broadcast of the Nashville Predators game from Sunrise, Florida, Fox Sports Tennessee played an incredible piece about Preds forward Brian McGrattan.

While speaking at the Nashville Salvation Army Sobriety Banquet, McGrattan talked about being three years clean-and-sober, his journey in getting there and how good he feels. If you’re feeling down and out about anything at all, click “play” and prepare to be inspired.

    Thanks Jeremy K. Gover for sharing this man… How the hell could anyone watch this and NOT root for McGrattan to succeed.

    There is another good video from CBC that features both Jordin and Brian talking about their struggles.

    What a great thing to do–and pretty damn hard, as well.
