Michael Oher, the left tackle for the Carolina Panthers, will be going to the Super Bowl after he and his teammates crushed the Arizona Cardinals in the NFC Championship game.
And yes, he is that Michael Oher from the Blind Side.
And on Sunday, Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy, the couple that adopted Oher and helped him to make it to the NFL (as depicted in the book and movie, "The Blind Side", attended the game to show their support for Oher. They went onto the field to celebrate the Panthers' victory over the Cardinals.
Michael Oher was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in the first round of the 2009 NFL Draft after earning All-American honors at Ole Miss. He also won a Super Bowl with the Ravens in 2013. Now, he will try to go for his second Super Bowl ring.
Oher said a lot of his Carolina teammates like to pick on him about the movie. Oher said he doesn't mind, because it helped him fit right in with the group. But he's personally not a fan of the movie and stated, "People look at me, and they take things away from me because of a movie."
