Panthers LT Michael Oher Cheered by 'The Blind Side' Family at NFC Championship

Vanessa de BeaumontContributor IJanuary 25, 2016

If you're a sports fan, you've probably seen The Blind Side—the story of Carolina Panthers left tackle Michael Oher's journey through young adulthood with the help of his adoptive family, the Tuohys. 

The incredible tale of generosity and strength is so moving that often it's easy to forget it's legit. 

But Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy, not Sandra Bullock and Tim McGraw, were standing by to support Oher when his nearly undefeated team took down the Arizona Cardinals 49-15 in the NFC Championship Game. 

No doubt the famous family will also be cheering him on as he chases his second Super Bowl ring in the coming weeks. 

For the record, someone is definitely cutting onions around here.
