"Blind Side" family, The Tuohy's, will be attending Sunday's Super Bowl along with actress Sandra Bullock (who played Leigh Anne Tuohy in the film "The Blind Side"). The Tuohy's adopted son, Michael Oher, plays for the Baltimore Ravens and his family will be cheering him -- and his team -- on when they face the 49ers tomorrow. On Feb. 2, ABC News reported that the whole family is excited to attend the game in the Big Easy.
"The Tuohys arrived in New Orleans on Thursday afternoon and have a packed schedule through the weekend, including dinner with Bullock, who'll also attend the Super Bowl with the family on Sunday evening," ABC News confirmed.
The "Blind Side" family was made famous when author Michael Lewis chose to write about their wonderful story. It seems that anyone who knows this family -- either personally or through the novel or film -- has really taken to them. They love one another and they undoubtedly love the game of football.
Sunday is a big day for the Tuohy's as Michael will play in his very first Super Bowl. All eyes will be on him, given that most of the country is familiar with his touching story. If you didn't know that Oher was on the team and you weren't sure who to root for in tomorrow's big game, perhaps this helps makes your decision a little easier. It's hard not to love Oher... and his family.
The "Blind Side" family will be cheering for #74... will you?
