Ex-Patriots lineman carried woman to safety after Boston blasts
GAME ON!

Amid the chaos of the explosions at the Boston Marathon on Monday, former New England Patriots offensive linemanF Joe Andruzzi sprang into action. Andruzzi--whose foundation, the Joe Andruzzi Foundation, had a team participating in the race--was photographed carrying a woman to safety by Bill Greene of the Boston Globe.

Later in the day, Andruzzi tweeted that he and his wife were unharmed.


Coincidentally enough, Andruzzi's three brothers were firefighters in New York City who responded to the attacks on Sept. 11. This is just further proof that the Andruzzi family is full of awesome guys.

Andruzzi released a statement regarding the photo of him. Per Andrew Siciliano of NFL Network:

Marathon Monday should be about uplifting stories, personal challenges and fundraising milestones, but today's bombings irrevocably changed that. While I appreciate the interest in hearing our perspective on today's horrific events, the spotlight should remain firmly on the countless individuals - first responders, medics, EMTs, runners who crossed the finish line and kept on running straight to give blood, and the countless civilians who did whatever they could to save lives. They were the true heroes. Our thoughts prayers go out to all those affected by this senseless tragedy.
Thanks to @kavekrew for the tip.
