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

dfosterf (27m) : Mmm mom mmm... knee... not good usually ... I'm sure it's nothing to be concerned about
dfosterf (36m) : Ya Dave, like Zero2Cool's experience, it's a buyer beware environment out there.
Zero2Cool (42m) : 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉 Cordarrelle Patterson out of Falcons practice again. 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄
dfosterf (49m) : Sec138 row 9 seats 1 and 2. Club level (2nd section up from field, but corner)
dfosterf (1h) : DC craigslist Guy is selling 2 tickets for 225 ea, but it's vip level, free food and parking
dfosterf (1h) : Dhazer I see tickets available directly from the Commanders website for 149.00
Zero2Cool (1h) : Packers WR @RomeoDoubs has been named @NFL Rookie of Week 3!
Zero2Cool (1h) : LaFleur says Jaire Alexander "Looked good for what we asked him to do," in jog through yesterday.
Zero2Cool (1h) : Something went wrong. Please try again later.
dhazer (2h) : Hey Dave I was thinking about the Washinbgton game but searched for tickets and damn cheapest is 210
Zero2Cool (6h) : Compare yourself to who you were yesterday, not to someone else today.
Zero2Cool (6h) : Jordan Peterson is pretty good stuff.
Zero2Cool (6h) : Fleaflicker Trade Rejected By fossilboy
Zero2Cool (6h) : WOW!!!
Zero2Cool (6h) : Speaks to immense lack of creativity!
dfosterf (7h) : I addressed your generous trade offer, btw
dfosterf (7h) : My fleaflicker moniker speaks to my older brother like affection for Dave
Zero2Cool (7h) : Well, your clown ass has "dhazer" in your name. Genius. Unoriginal.
dfosterf (8h) : Was mentioned. I, personally, do not care for it at all, and would very much appreciate it if you would just go ahead and cut him. Thank you in advance ☺️
dfosterf (8h) : As to your acquisition of a qb, the matter has been discussed here previously. While some seem ambivalent about you having Trevor- something about regular season vs playoffs
dfosterf (8h) : It's all quite confusing
dfosterf (8h) : First Jersey confuses you with me, then you confuse Jersey with me, O hott
dhazer (15h) : ok shit I am taking down the marine my bad
dhazer (15h) : hell i am taking jersey down with guys I picked up off the waiver wire including my QB lol
Zero2Cool (16h) : You got all ya wanted and still gonna lose!!!
dfosterf (18h) : Logical? Did you really say logical? You traded away pretty much the whole front end of your draft to a guy that you definitely want talking smack up in here, lol
Zero2Cool (19h) : Why would I start a guy I skipped instead of the one I kept? Logical. Try it.
Zero2Cool (19h) : You ask me that question? If I would have started a guy that I could have picked on waiver or the guy I have? What?
dfosterf (21h) : Regardless, give me credit for getting a rise out of Jersey Cheese. He's talking smack to Dhazer, because he thinks he's me. He hasn't posted here in 12 YEARS
dfosterf (22h) : Higbee, that dog won't hunt. Lol
dfosterf (22h) : Ok Hign
dfosterf (22h) : As to you skipping Tyler Lockett, I got nothing. Maybe you should have slept in
dfosterf (22h) : Actually a pretty fascinating trade scenario
dfosterf (22h) : Go ahead. Punch it into that mainframe Cray that makes your cape look more better. Guarantee Tyler comes out on top of that analysis. I'm going on a mere hunch
dfosterf (22h) : You have to pay for expertise. In this case. It's a small fee
dfosterf (22h) : If you had to start one today which one would it be?
Zero2Cool (22h) : lmao what the heck man, another waiver pick up that I SKIPPED ??
dfosterf (22h) : Trade is up.
Zero2Cool (22h) : It was a jog through.
Zero2Cool (22h) : Alexander, Bakhtiari Practice for Packers
Zero2Cool (23h) : Bring it! I gave you two gifts for your scraps. What more from my cellar err STELLAR team do ya want?!?!?
Zero2Cool (23h) : You need your damn eyes checked. It's not even remotely close to that and it's offensive you continue to say it. I've explained it. Which NO ONE in over 25 years has ever had a qusetion.
dfosterf (28-Sep) : So, let's come up with another trade
dfosterf (28-Sep) : But I am done worrying about folks personal preferences, so am done on the subject as well
dfosterf (28-Sep) : It may be an overlord, whatever that is. but to me he looks like he is catching it in the keester by a little black dog. so I remain unimpressed
Zero2Cool (28-Sep) : The avatar is an overlord. If you can't get that through your senile brain, that's you being an dumbass. Enough about it already.\
Zero2Cool (28-Sep) : CB Jaire Alexander suited up for #Packers jog thru practice Wednesday. Same for WR Christian Watson.
dfosterf (28-Sep) : It's just a one liner. 😆
dfosterf (28-Sep) : It's just a one liner. 😆
dfosterf (28-Sep) : Now we get to the true etymology of that avatar you roll with.
