That's a champion back on his "feet" (figuratively) in 19 days after having both legs blown off.
Generations of war heroes spent years in veteran's hospitals recovering from complications, infections, shock and then learning to use prosthetics. It took some of them a year just to adjust to the reality of having lost their legs and to talk about it sufficiently to then be coaxed into a year of rehab and practicing using artificial legs.
This uber-badass was all grins in 19 days, identifying terrorists, cheering on the fans and whooping it up for the crowd barely after the blood had dried. It was almost like he was already an amputee and had just chucked on a fake bloodless prosthetic limb for the cameras to do some "emergency" photos.
That's not bad-ass, that is ultimate bad-ass. Ultimate bad-ass Jeff Bauman is the king of bad-assery. If Chuck Norris and Jeff Bauman had a fight, Chuck Norris would regret all his movies portraying himself as a bad-ass when it would be obvious Jeff was the world's greatest bad-ass having beaten Chuck to a pulp using only his small pinkie toe … if it was found. Legs blown off like disposable tampons and back out on the dance floor in 19 days. This is a true story that really happened. It really did.
I would describe Jeff Bauman as the most incredible medical miracle in the recorded history of life on planet Earth, period. It's just lucky that this story is TOTALLY TRUISH. I don't doubt that Jeff may have lost his legs to a bomb of some sort except I expect it was in Iraq, several years ago.
