CAPITOLA (KRON) — Bryan Stow, the paramedic who was beaten outside Dodgers Stadium for wearing a Giants jersey, is celebrating San Francisco’s win in Game One of the World Series.
ESPN watched the game with Stow and his parents Tuesday evening at their home in Capitola.
“He’s come a long way,” Stow’s father David says. “We didn’t think he was going to be this mobile or vocal but we he can sit and have dinners with us. He’s very funny.”
Stow was attacked in the parking lot of Dodgers Stadium on Opening Day in March of 2011.
“I remember going to watch the Giants play.” Bryan Stow says. His parents say he doesn’t remember what happened in the attack but he adds, “had I known I would have seen the guy running at me ready to clock my block.”
The 45-year-old still requires 24 hour care. Insurance has run out and so far the family has seen no money from the $18 Million jury verdict against the Dodgers.
Louie Sanchez is now serving eight years in prison for felony mayhem and Marvin Norwood got four years for felony assault.
Stow says he loves being alive but says, “I want to run, I want to walk like a normal person.”
Despite the brain damage and memory losses, Stow says he never stopped being a Giants fan.
“Who else am I going to like? The A’s? The Dodgers? No the Giants are where it’s at.”
