ESPN is going to run the entire full-length story at 6pm on Sunday during SportsCenter according to thier schedule, but it will probably be on in the morning also, as you said...

Akeem Havens just wanted to play video games with his idol, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. But Roethlisberger and the Steelers had bigger plans for Havens, who got a chance to score a touchdown against the team's vaunted defense.

ESPN just aired the entire story right around noon.... Was about 7 or 8 minutes long, and it actually made me tear-up.... Ben as well as the whole team were outstanding with this young boy...

It is definitely worth catching tonight at 6pm, or set the DVR....

I'm embarrased to admit that I forgot to set my DVR this morning since I've been looking foward to it all week. I will definitely catch it later today.....

I saw it twice yesterday. Once with my wife and son and then later on in the day when my in-laws were over. And yeah, we were all a bit teary eyed. Just another reason why I'm so proud to be a fan of this organization.
