Ok you know your a die hard fan when......


Ronald Poppo has had as bad a couple weeks as a person can have. The Miami man was homeless to start with, then on May 26 a naked crazed “zombie” in an altered condition attacked him and ripped so much of Poppo’s face off he was unidentifiable.

He’s gone through a couple weeks of surgery, has lost one eye and may never have full vision in the other, has an infection in his face, still needs to have his nose reconstructed and will be in the hospital for a while.

But he is in remarkably good spirits and according to a report from Gawker (warning: graphic image at that link) he had a message he wanted to get out.

Dr. Nicholas Namias spoke with Poppo this morning, and said he had two words he wanted to convey: “Go Heat.”

Good to see the support, because if LeBron James doesn’t have a spectacular finals his haters will come out like zombies looking for their own pound of flesh on social media.

Priorities - he does not have them.

I mean, don't say that he's alright or anything.

If I woke up out a coma of like 10 years, the first thing I would definitely say would be... have the Raptors made it out the draft lottery yet?

Getting Your Face Ripped Off so Much Its unidentifiable, Permanently Losing Full Vision of One Eye By having it Missing, Losing Major Vision in the other one, Getting A Major Infection In The Face From Having 75%-80% of It Missing, and Being Homeless.

I honestly Can't think of anything Worse.

I Hate The Heat With A Passion But..

Go HEAT! Win For This Guy!!!

I hope for the best when it comes to this guy. What happened to him was nothing short of contemptible.

I've heard about the story right after the news broke but still haven't heard how he got in a position where guy could be eating his face. Did the guy have a weapon and knock him out?

I can't believe how good he looks after seeing his original photo post attack. Not great obviously but i thought he only had a chin left.
