Anyone who saves a child is a hero in my book.

Anyone with the last name Pope must be blessed.

Re: Chiefs TE Leonard Pope Saves Child From Drowning

I'm not trying to take anything away from the positive of this story, because it is a positive and great thing that leonard did, but how the hell was pope the only one that knew how to swim at that whole party? I feel like that has to be a misprint. Clearly there were parents around if the mother of the child whose birthday it wasn't saw her own child drowning and leonard was also there.

NFL.com news: Chiefs TE Pope rescues drowning child at Georgia pool party

nevermind. this is the article I read. The article in the op makes more sense. I can't believe nobody responded. Good for Leonard for stepping up.

Re: Chiefs TE Leonard Pope Saves Child From Drowning

You think its odd that no one stepped up but maybe the people there couldn't swim well or were in shock.

Either way cool stuff. Gotta think if this lockout wasn't in place, Pope may have not been in GA and we wouldn't have this good headline.

I admired him as a player and as a human being, he was like the Art Monk of the Chiefs personality wise.

I agree. Low income people that do not have access to a pool when they are children usually end up being afraid or embarrassed (or both) to learn how to swim as adults. So they don't get around to learning.
We take it for granted.
