Lee Corso won’t let the stroke he suffered in May slow him down

Lee Corso stepped outside his home in Heathrow around 8:30 a.m. on May 16, and disappeared.
Somebody else came back into the house. That person, newspaper in hand, grabbed a glass of orange juice and sat down in the patio. He felt woozy. He then tried to talk.
“Gaaagggh, baaahh.” Pure gibberish.
Corso — the loquacious Mad Hatter on ESPN’s College GameDay — vanished that day, replaced by a man engulfed in dark silence.
The diagnosis was a mild stroke. The adjective was a life-saver. Corso saw it for himself, as he began his rehabilitation to heal his body and mind. Others in that room, scarred for life, weren’t so lucky.
