That's a sad life
I’m an adolescent psychiatric nurse. Most people would not believe how common this level of child abuse is. It’s so heartbreaking.
Loved watching Jimmy when he was with my Seahawks. Had his jersey, and was bummed when he left. I knew he'd had a rough childhood...but I had no idea it was that bad. Jimmy's mom: "What will you give me for this 11-year-old kid? Group home: "Nothing." Jimmy's mom: "Deal! Where do I sign?" Daaaaamn....I can't even imagine.
Who here after he one handed on the bucs
Never knew his story. But he was always a solid player I liked to watch. Except when he joined the packers lol. But now he’s on the Bears he has really been a great addition to the offense.
Now he balling out 🐻⬇️
My step mom did this with both of her kids... she is trash, my dad and her have been married for almost 20 years and I refuse to have any contact with her🥴
He getting TD with the Bears that's where he at... 🤣
Inspiring in many ways.
You and Foolish Baseball Are My Favorite Channels To Get Past Information on Former or Current Players, Respect To You Both
I remember sitting in the stands with my brother watching jimmy score a TD for the hurricanes and saying, "who the hell is that?". Few weeks later we said, you won't have to remember him because he isn't going away
had to sub. always appreciate the work and dedication regardless of the topic. keep up the good work.
Bro you need to do a video about zion the wrestler he has a 10 min video on Netflix that moved me not to be funny but he is a highschool wrestler that has no legs
That was a good one! Thanks
Anybody else say “cue the Wayne” when he says it? Just me?
jesus christ idk what it is about your videos but once I click on one, I'm watching 5 of them. so good to see someone that can actually stay nutrial
his mom regrets what she did 😂probably calling him for money never give up on your kids
This guy is very inspiring on the field, but considering that he stared into the abyss as a CHILD, the most remarkable aspect of this man is that he's become a well adjusted, productive human, much less an NFL superstar! Truly amazing.
11:02 I think that saints fan likes Jimmy to much
This was a beautiful story. Thank you Flemlo.
I needed keeps about 20 years ago. I need something called finds.
what happened to his sister?
anyone here after he made a big catch against the buccs?
I’m confuse why he’s telling the story and not Jimmy
What’s FlemLo’s background track called?
i love flem's channel so much. he comes with the bomb storytelling AND he got a warm community. i feel like im with family when im in the comment section. i love you all!
Im 20 years old, 6'4", and 220 lbs time to go get into shape and hang outside of bill belichicks house i guess
Man you got me in tears happy and sad .shit mirrors my life too much I turned to drugs for help jimmy made it thank god
This is a sad ass story I'm glad he was able to somewhat overcome his childhood and I say somewhat because I don't know what that upbringing has done to his mental
Why don't you just call Jimmy's mom a crack head ?
Flemlo I rewatch your vids like every day you are amazing
I had no knowledge of this about graham wow, talk about turning a negative situation into the biggest positive jimmy is one of my fav players. Thanks for this video Flemlo
That fro 😂😂
Very talented player but if he was so immature and stupid he will be a Hall of Famer instead of a footnote! If we never left the New Orleans Saints or demand we paid like a first why receiver he very easily could’ve been a Hall of Fame tied in with the New Orleans saints he had a great career but he definitely blew the Hall of Fame what is arrogance is stupidity
Man, this video shook me.
...next up Kellen Winslow jr
Why wasn’t the sister also given away to the state?
His mother needs to be in jail
God bless Jimmy Graham, and Becky for getting him out of that situation.
Without your video I would have never known this about Jimmy Graham,I also was a foster kid so I can relate.I was a foster kid at age 4 and in the system for a little over a year until I was adopted.I'm not a fan of the Chicago Bears Jimmy's new team but I'm now a fan of Jimmy Graham the person, much respect for holding his head up and making something of himself.
People are terrible to treat their own son in this manner. And along comes a total stranger and takes him in and gives him a wonderful life and goes to college and graduates with a double major
When I was 11 almost 12 my mom put me into foster care because she didn’t want me around and chose my sister over me. My mom is now dead, died of pancreatic cancer in 2017, my sister is also now dead, motorcycle accident in 2012
Sorry to hear that. I hope you can find some peace.
Saints should have just paid the man. He was making WR moves so they should have given him WR money. Stupid.
dont ever get rid of the wayne please
This should be a movie
I don’t mean to get political or talk about social issues but this is another reason why I’m pro - life. Yes circumstances can be severe where the odds are stacked against the child but Jimmy Graham made a choice and chose to overcome. Another inspirational story is Richard “ Night Lane “ Train. The odds were stacked against him but he chose to overcome and became one of the greatest DB’s in NFL history. As long as you are alive , there is always HOPE. Even if it’s just an ounce of it. That’s all you need. ☝🏽🙏🏽
Wtf he still playin
He's resurged a bit since this video came out
Tell me why I thought the ad was the start of the story 💀
Wow, I did not know his back story but that's about as inspirational as it gets!
I dont understand how someone can abuse a dog or child. Women as well but women do be testing men sometimes and some Men just arent true men. But a kid or defenseless animals? Got me pissed of too FlemLo
Church is always the best place to go to man i love God even when i get piss still love him cause i know my future bright if I have faith and hope
you are the best youtuber
For Jimmy Graham to come out of what he went through, is absolutely incredible and so inspiring.
yes, lets search everyones childhood,, girllll please
There are some players that go to a deep dark place that it fuels their drive and determination, they done let up.
“That’s the importance of networking, boom!” Flemlo is the best!
Your haircut looks fresh Flemlo!
Flemlo is the best at telling someone's story !!!!!
Bears still want another tight end
Good for him for figuring out a way to thrive through adversity, and god bless the nurse that adopted him and gave him hope
Ofc browns fuck up not getting jimmy 😂
Imagine having a friend like Flemlo!!
hines ward or Jerome bettis? would be cool....yes obviously steelers fan
I've never teared up during one of your videos, but I did through this one.
Real inspiration, you never know what someone’s been through so treat people with respect.
Wow. What an AMAZING story.
🙏🏾ing 4 u
@11:00 to see sexual assault caught on camera
The woman who adopted him deserves the world. What a beautiful chance to take:
Now I feel bad for disliking him so much as a player
Great video and content as always.
Man deep story u good at what u do flemLo
This is a Great story from trouble to triumph. I'm so glad he kept climbing through the chaos, and became all that God had intended for him to become. What a beautiful ending for a beautiful young man. 😍🌹💖😘
Beautiful story. 🙏
Damn bro this hit different I felt that.
8:17 story of my life 🤦🏾♂️
This story put me and other slackers stories in this sport to shame. God bless jimmy....great story flemlo u never disappoint
Gr8 vid as always ..thx FlemLo
Long dreadlocks are the opposite of fresh. Guy. Common man.
His family’s financial struggle is the perfect example why we need better support for people struggling
He’s also a pilot.
Please do a video on Andre Rison! A lot of kids today don’t know who he is.
He stopped having Drew Brees. That's what's happened to him.
Do Steven Jackson bro
Little orphan boy making mom out there really mad she gave him up
Sh!t sos sad. Thank The Great Lord Universe it all worked out for Jimmy G. This made me like him even more. He’s a straight up G.
Love the channel bro.
Do a what happened to Joseph Randle
Keeps came with the just for men advertisement
I also had a horrible childhood down here in Brazil. Before I was 9, my mom threw me in an orphanage where nobody gave a shit about the kids and there I was beaten, sexually abused, stabbed, introduced to drugs, and schooled in all types of petty crime, until I turned 15 when I sneaked out with a few friends , that time to never come back. That place broke most kids, and it also broke me in certain ways, but it actually taught how to be a ruthless hustler and that made me very, very successful. I went from selling water bottles at the traffic lights ( very common , self-employed, job here in Brazil, comparable to window-cleaning in the US) to having a statewide pizza franchise. But in my case, nobody come to save me... All of that doesn't matter though. Here's what matters: my mother, who I hadn't seen for the past 19 years, recognized me in ads that sponsored in a local TV network. And then guess what? She tried to connect, pretending to be sorry and shit me and shit. I just ignored. Then she had the wherewithal to go on TV (one of those drama talk shows) cried her face off pretending to a victim, and to love me while exposing me and my business to the entire country. Then I finally called her so that she would leave me alone , then after a few attempts to convince me to give her a chance. She finally got down to business and straight up told me that she would only leave alone if I gave her R$50k , which is not much at all. But this is killing me and since then I can't go one minute without thinking about how much I hate her and I have been struggling hard with the possibility of having her killed.
Big ups 4 Jimmy Jam.......piss for his moms though
