Giants fan Bryan Stow speaks to ESPN
Bryan Stow talked to ESPN for the first time since he was attacked outside Dodger Stadium.

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow was beaten outside Dodgers Stadium back in 2011. Stow gave an emotional interview to EPSN and for the first time, we are seeing and hearing the incredible progress he's made since the attack.

Stow pointed to some of the sports memorabilia he's collected. He pointed to a few signed baseballs saying, "This one's from Tim Lincecum and this one's from Will Clark. 'Bryan, a true Giant!' signed by Will Clark."

Stow has been disabled since the attack on opening day 2011. There are holes in his memory, including the Giants winning the World Series in 2010 and 2012. He said the team's recent run has been a blessing to his life.

When he was asked why he loved the Giants and why were they his team, Stow replied, "Why not? Who else am I going to like? The A's? The Dodgers? No. The Giants are where it's at."

Stow now lives at his parents' home in Capitola and is looked after by his family. He was awarded an $18 million settlement, but has not received the money because of setbacks with the court.

For now, Stow is happy he's alive and even happier seeing his team win once again.
