I saw a few tweets this morning indicating how great today’s episode of The View was, and of course thought that someone was crank yankin’ me. Sure, Barbara Walters is hot, but come on. Then I saw this clip on the 700 Level, and all became clear. For one day, The View ruled all.

Nadin Khoury, a 13-year-old Delco, PA, boy, was bullied by seven classmates who notoriously videotaped the assault and put it on YouTube. His assailants were arrested, and Khoury has stepped up to speak out against school bullying. During his segment on The View, co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck broke in and said that someone was in the back who had been wanting to meet him. So out on stage come Eagles players DeSean Jackson, Jamal Jackson and Todd Herremans. Khoury began tearing up as soon as he saw the players, and the rest of us followed suit. Damn winter allergies.

The full segment is linked here.

DeSean later posted this photo (seen above) on Twitter, writing: “Show was hands down one of the best.. I felt this young Boi.. Keep ya head HIGH NADIN!!”

Just further proof that it takes really big men to play in the NFL.

    Typical big pansy eagles fan for ya, maybe if he liked a “good” team he wouldnt be getting his butt kicked every single day. I blame it on bad parenting personally.

    I echo what the man said “Damn winter allergies!” It’s easy to be cynical but these guys have lots of calls on their time and they chose to go see that kid. I have nothing but respect for them because not only did it give this individual – and brave – kid a boost, It was a strong statement against bullying. I hope it in some way made up for the awful experience that young man went through. “I’ve got your back!”: said DeSean Jackson. All kids need to know we all have thier backs.
