Bo Jackson Surprises Paralympian Who Idolized Him As A Kid

Blake Leeper was born with his legs ending at the knees. Today, he's a Paralympian, earning medals in the 2012 Paralympic Games and 2013 IPC World Championships. Also relevant: he loves Bo Jackson.

Jackson, the legendary two-sport athlete who continued his MLB career even after a hip replacement, helped motivate Leeper to become a Paralympic athlete. During Leeper's appearance on The Arsenio Hall Show, Arsenio Hall surprised Leeper by bringing out his idol. Leeper's face is priceless when he realizes what the hell's happening. (Skip to the three-minute mark for the payoff if you're an impatient person.)

Bo Jackson is so cool.
