Lets turn aside from Pacman and Vick stories to pay some props to one of the good guys doing a good thing.
Washington Redskins offensive lineman Chris Samuels gave away a house in his native Alabama yesterday. Samuels, working through his foundation, donated the home by way of a drawing to the winner, Brenda Smith.
Samuels is developing a parcel of land in a real estate venture to include 70 homes and a community center. He decided to give away one of the completed homes to someone who was unable to buy it, but had the means to keep it.
"The good Lord blessed me to make it into the NFL and to play there and I've wanted to do something for Alabama," said Samuels, Mobile, AL native. "This is truly a blessing for me."
And it's a blessing for me to tell this story on Mother's Day.
