A thread recognizing moments (seemingly rare) athletes just simply get it... or at least speak as if they get it.

Prime example..

Although HHCD made too many "business decisions" on the field, I get that he got it:

Great idea for a thread, 93.

I'm not a Feijenoord fan, but I love this moment. I know he's aware that there's a camera there and he won't mind the PR-points he scored here, but he did give all those kids a moment they'll carry with them for the rest of their lifes.

Puck hit a kid, Elliott went over to him and chatted with him, took a selfie too. Probably made that kids day.

It's the little things that make such a big difference. Yes the big name athletes can start foundations that raise millions of dollars. That's wonderful. But it's the time they spend saying hello to a kid of giving the child the hockey stick or jersey or whatever that has a more profound and lasting impression. A few years ago I came to the realization that a lot of these professionals are parents themselves and would like it if someone took the time to help their child (or younger sibling) so they too pay it forward with a little bit of their time.

This one million dollars wasn't just $1,000,000. It started something that grew and spawned many others to donate too.


How damn cool is this?

Jon Stewart isn't an athlete, but I love it when people know they have the camera and try to use it for good.


I don't know that Jon Stewart had any doings behind the bill, but I'm glad it was passed.

Albert Pujols gets it. 

Quote:

Heart-warming moment Angel slugger Albert Pujols takes his own sweater and draws it for an overjoyed young fan with Down syndrome
Los Angeles Angels slugger Albert Pujols delights a young Down syndrome fan after a recent competition by giving the boy his own shirt from his back
After Thursday's victory over Blue Jays in Toronto, Pujols walked on to the first baseline where nine-year-old Nico was waiting
The designated candidate player of 6 foot-3, 240 pounds did not hesitate to remove his jersey, take a pen from Nico & # 39; s outstretched hand and sign his name on the back
After this, Nico turned and let Pujols draw the back of his shirt
Nico & # 39; s father, Joe Squarini, posted the video on Twitter and wrote: & # 39; Thank you @ PujolsFive! You made our night. Nico will never forget your @pujolsfound & # 39;
The Albert Pujols Foundation was established to promote & # 39; raise awareness, provide hope and meet tangible needs for children and families living with Down syndrome & # 39;
Pujols & stepdaughter Isabella was born with Down syndrome on January 1, 2000

beast (14h) : As long as they have excuses, MM will stay at least 3 years... they refused to let the prior guy go until his contract was up. Cowboys need more defensive talent and they got no cap space.
Zero2Cool (16h) : Someone might be traded, lol. Report: Bengals tell Carlos Dunlap to stay home Wednesday
Cheesey (28-Oct) : The Cowboys stunk WITH Dak as QB. But maybe J.Jones will give MM another year before he cans him.

Zero2Cool (27-Oct) : Wisconsin is potentially down to its fourth string quarterback for the next 21 days because of overly restrictive Big Ten policies on positive covid test results
wpr (27-Oct) : Cheesey, not really. If he was good he wouldn't have been released. He has never had 500 yards in a season. In his best year he caught 45 passes out of 64 targets..
Cheesey (27-Oct) : I don’t know anything about him. Is he any good?
Zero2Cool (27-Oct) : From Twitter... Packers are bringing in veteran WR Seth Roberts, who was released by the Panthers earlier today. A source said the plan is to sign him to the practice squad initially.
Smokey (26-Oct) : Fred & Ethel Mertz used be "Lucey & Rickey's" neighbors on the I Love Lucey show. Is this fellow related ? LOL
Zero2Cool (26-Oct) : @Gil_Brandt Davante Adams has two games this season of 150+ receiving yards and 2+ receiving touchdowns. The rest of the NFL's receivers has two such games in 2020 (Justin Jefferson and Tyler Lockett)

wpr (26-Oct) : Yoop Black is a PS player called up for the game.They sent him back down already. I hope Amos gives him the ball b/c that may be his only game trophy.

Mucky Tundra (25-Oct) : Holy crap what a crazy ending to a World Series game!
Zero2Cool (25-Oct) : We'll see about Jones. Packers are leaning on holding him, but it's game time decision.
