"He is her eyes": This husband provides basketball game play-by-play for wife who lost her sight


TRENTON, Ga. - Angie Bone lost her sight in 2014, but that hasn't stopped her from "seeing" her son's high school basketball games.

Her husband Gary has been providing play-by-play calls at each game.

Angie Bone lost her sight due to complications from diabetes, but Gary Bone was determined to include Angie Bone in every aspect of their family's activities.

From church, to shopping, to sports, a lack of sight was not going to keep Angie Bone on the sidelines.

She had watched her son, Noah, and his friends since they were toddlers, and their journey was not yet finished. Gary Bone describes each play with great enthusiasm and detail, and Angie Bone hangs on to every word.

"I saw every game before I lost my sight, and I feel like I've seen every game since. Gary helps me watch the game. He describes everything that is going on, and I just visualize it. In my own way I can really see what the boys are doing," said Angie Bone.
