WHEN MEN BECOME HEROES
Victor Cruz of the New York Giants did something today that brought me to tears. Probably because I have children, or maybe because kindness is what makes the world go round and we need to remember that once in a while.
As NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal writes: "NFL.com's Kimberly Jones said Cruz also left the conversation with the family believing Jack Pinto will be buried in a Cruz jersey. Cruz wore the cleats and glove during the game, and Nichols reported that the wide receiver plans to drive to Newtown this week to personally deliver the mementos to Pinto's family." Read the piece HERE.
Look, Bleeding Yankee Blue is a Yankee site, that's apparent, but let's be clear... This move by Cruz is outstanding. I applaud him and I am personally having a hard time with this story so reading about this makes me feel good.
On a side note... you wanted to know where Kimberly Jones went? She's with the NFL. Below she is holding a helmet of one of the New York Giants. Every Giant write "SHES" on their helmet for "SANDY HOOK ELEMENTARY SCHOOL"... Amazing.
