Despite Minor Hearing Loss, The ‘Fridge’ Can Sadly Still Hear ‘Super Bowl Shuffle’

The brother of former NFL star William “The Refrigerator” Perry reports that despite some minor hearing loss, The Fridge’s health is improving after dealing with issues associated with an immune system disorder. From the AP:

Fellow NFL standout Michael Dean Perry said Monday his 47-year-old brother has regained most of his strength and is back up to about 330 pounds as he recovers in his South Carolina home.

Michael Dean Perry says his brother lost more than 100 pounds since he was diagnosed with Guillain-Barre syndrome last year. William Perry spent time at a North Carolina rehab center before moving back home.

Well, here’s to The Fridge’s continuing success on the road to a complete recovery. Nothing would make me happier than knowing Mr. Perry is back to his old self. The guy is a legend and I’m not talking about his integral role he played on the Chicago Bears’ 1985 Super Bowl-winning team. I am, of course, referring to the fact that he had his own G.I. Joe action figure. That’s bad ass, my friends.
