Tennessee Titan Chris Johnson Going Soft On Us

With athletes making headlines for all of the wrong reasons lately, whether it is Tiger Wood’s freak in the sheets mentality or Ben Roethlisberger’s sexually assaulting of youthful fruit; Chris Johnson’s recent act of generosity was a breath of fresh air.   The Tennessee Titan’s all-world running back had just finished his five-star Grand Slam breakfast at Denny’s Restaurant; but before leaving his inner Mr. Rogers emerged and for no apparent reason he paid for an elder couple’s meal.  Wow!  So it isn’t true that all professional athletes are egotistical dicks. I think we should all sleep a little better tonight knowing that this Lil Wayne look-alike gives all our sports heroes a glimmer of hope moving forward.  In a big world a small gesture can go along way and all though stories like these will always go under the radar, they shouldn’t.  The news is too often filled with tragedy, despair, heartache and horror.  Isn’t it about time we pay homage to those small deeds that are deserving of recognition?

    agreed! we never seem to hear enough about the ‘good’ stories – they don’t create the drama and buzz 😦
