This is just so touching.
Sports fans come from all sorts of backgrounds. Young, old; rich, poor. Some can’t see, some can’t hear. Some can’t see or hear. But they can still enjoy a game.
This video that’s blowing up on Reddit shows how one blind-deaf soccer fan takes in a match. I have no idea where it came from or who the people are (the Reddit post says they’re a father and son) but I know it’s really touching to watch.
The Reddit post only says the man is blind but a commenter posits that he’s also deaf, which is why he’s having the action played out with his hands instead of taking in the sounds of the match.
Sure enough, this appears to be the preferred way for blind-deaf soccer fans to take in a match. The video below went viral during the 2014 World Cup and shows a blind-deaf man watching one of Brazil’s matches the same way.
