Que Dios la bendiga, Abuela.

We’ve all seen football players and other sports figures, when the tv cameras zoom in for a close up, wave and say “Hi mom!”, paying homage to their mothers on National TV. Well, Cuban-American Ohio State receiver Anthony Gonzalez sends greetings to someone else near and dear to him when approached by the cameras:

A true blessing

The biggest catch OSU receiver Anthony Gonzalez makes on game day is the prayer his 84-year-old grandmother phones from Miami.

FAMILY AFFAIR: Lourdes Gonzalez, 84, of Miami has been a huge influence on grandson Anthony, an Ohio State receiver. Not long after scoring the first points in Ohio State’s last No. 1 vs. No. 2 showdown, receiver Anthony Gonzalez encountered the red light of a TV camera on the Buckeyes’ sideline at Texas.

Gonzalez gazed into the lens. ”Hi, abuela,” he said.

Read the whole wonderful thing here. And make sure to take in the picture of Abuela Gonzalez, it’ll touch your heart.
