Read the following from Peter King’s MMQB column over at si.com. (For the full story, go here). I know a good many of us were annoyed by his wife back in 1999 when Warner was dominant with the Rams, but this is cool, really cool. What a neat thing to do – especially considering they’ve made it a practice to do it anonymously.
Good Guy of the Week
Arizona quarterback Kurt Warner.
Karen Crouse of the New York Times wrote a good feature on Warner in last Friday’s paper, with a prescient story as the lead. Seems that Warner, wife, Brenda, and one or more of the Warner children have a practice the night before football games. They sit at their table in a restaurant, look over the dining room, and pick out one family. Warner then informs the wait staff that, anonymously, he’d like the dinner tab of that family of strangers added to his.
Crouse wrote the Warners have been doing this for several years “as a way of instilling in their children the joy of giving,” and quoted Warner thusly: “We want our kids to grow up knowing that because of football we are so blessed.”
Just another reason why you can never say enough good things about Kurt Warner.
