Mark Ingram Breaks Down

One of the best moments of the 2011 NFL Draft was when Alabama running back Mark Ingram broke down in tears.

Mark Ingram was selected by the New Orleans Saints with the 28th overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.  ESPN’s Suzy Kolber read the Alabama star running back an email right after he was drafted.  Ingram’s father is currently in a federal prison for laundering and bank fraud.  It was a touching moment to see how the message hit home with Ingram.

It’s always interesting to me to see how many ‘dislike’ votes there are on YouTube for this video.  At the time I posted this story, nearly 100 people disliked this video for whatever reason.  Talk about dwelling on the negative when it comes to a very positive story.  It’s not a video that suggests Mark Ingram’s father shouldn’t be in prison for breaking the law.  It’s a video showing how a son misses his father.  How is that not understandable?
