That's pretty cool

He did something similar last year didn't he?

Wonder if he stays in SF?

A one-man scholarship fund. Praiseworthy.

Great gesture on his behalf at $790,000K, better than losing that money on smoking weed like someone we know.

Lol this must have been the inspiration for that episode of The Office. Except this time around the ending was a lot better.

[QUOTE]In the episode, Michael and Erin meet "Scott's Tots", a group of local teenagers whose college tuition was promised in one of Michael's grand delusions ten years prior. Meanwhile, in Michael's absence, Jim starts an employee-of-the-month program to boost morale, which Dwight sabotages.

I should be seeing this on the ESPN crawler....BUT No drug bust....didn't shoot himself in a bar.....
NO coverage
Good on him for doing a GREAT thing!
Note: Since his departure from the mother ship, a certain former devotee will not be forced to defend his boys from my media...assault.

Awesome story, seems to be a good guy. Would you guys give him a contract next year because he would be cheap and experienced? Id take him over Stallworth or someone like that.

Washington Post ran a 3 part story this weekend about how Abe Pollin did something similar for kids at an elementary school in Suitland many years ago. Unfortunately, the results weren't entirely promising

Better than giving back to the community than Chad Ochocinco....
