Ronald Poppo The Miami Face Eating Victim Has a Message: “GO HEAT!!”
Poppo is lucky to be alive, but as you can see he isn’t in the best of shape.
If you recall he was the victim of a bizarre face eating attack on a Miami Freeway, which left his attacker dead and people wondering if Zombies are among us.
He is recovering and has a message for the South Beach NWO.
Ronald Poppo, the homeless man left in critical condition 17 days ago in a bloody attack by the so-called Causeway Cannibal, knows that at least half his face was chewed off, one eye was gouged out and he may be blind in the other, his doctors said Tuesday.
Poppo’s physicians at Jackson Memorial Hospital said he is eating well, not complaining of pain and was looking forward to listening to the first game of the NBA Finals between Miami and Oklahoma City.
“Before I left the room to come down here today he asked me if I’d be watching the game tonight and he told me “Go Heat,’ ” said Nicholas Namias, a University of Miami physician and director of Jackson’s Ryder Trauma Center.
Poppo was injured May 26 after police say Rudy Eugene, 31, found him dozing on the MacArthur Causeway, severely beat him, and then spent several minutes chewing on his face. Police speculate that Eugene may have taken a craze-inducing drug. Toxicology results are pending.
Probably didn’t like what he heard in Game 1, but the series is just getting started.
