VIDEO: Joe Andruzzi and family relive 9/11

Posted by Will Brinson

The family of former Patriots guard Joe Andruzzi is deeply connected to the tragic events of September 11, 2011. Three of Joe's brothers are New York firefighters, and Joe's father is a former New York Police Department officer.

Joe made football "history" when he ran into Gillette Stadium during the Patriots first game back after 9/11, holding an American flag in each hand, with his brothers in the stadium in their firefighting gear, being celebrated by the crowd for their heroism.

CBS Sports' Lesley Visser sat down with the three-time Super Bowl champion in a touching clip that aired during The NFL Today as he recalled the events of 9/11 and the Patriots game afterwards.

In somewhat related news, as this clip aired during the pre-game festivities, FOX Sports aired a clip of Frank Caliendo doing a Larry the Cable Guy impersonation. So there's that.
