Lately, I've been hearing a lot of negative things surrounding athletes. Guys getting into fights on and off the field...NBA players whining over money...guys just being stupid.
But then I heard something that I thought was just awesome.
Cam Newton spotted a teenage girl sitting in the stands at the game wearing a t-shirt that said "Mrs. Newton" across the back. When he scored a touchdown, he went directly over to her and handed her the ball. I can only imagine how excited she was...he must have made her whole year.
As it turns out, that was a record setting touchdown...Newton's 13th for the season and the most by an NFL quarterback ever. The team eventually asked the girl for the ball back so it could go to the NFL Hall of Fame...but she didn't care. Just the fact that she got to singled out by Newton was enough for her.
It's awfully nice to hear good things like this. Well done, Cam...well done.
