Matt and Kelly Stafford make my friend’s kid’s Christmas really special

This is now making the national news and it’s pretty cool

My buddy Conor passed away earlier this year very unexpectedly and left three boys. They were huge football fans and especially Lions fans. Matt and Kelly Stafford paid the boys a visit last week.

Stafford also invited the boys to use his suite for the Packers game along with 7 of their friends, complete with locker room tour and boatloads of Lions swag.

Pretty cool. Their reactions are priceless.

I don't agree with his stance on rooting for the Lions but him and his wife seem like good people.

We're a loyal, if tortured, bunch. Matt and Kelly are legit good people as well, and she had brain surgery earlier this year.

Saw the clip of them coming to the door on Twitter this morning.  Good stuff.  Would rather see clips of the various good deeds by pro athletes than the crime and punishment headlines we usually get.

Props to the Staffords, and sympathies to your friends' family.

Is this an oxymoron?

Kudos to the Staffords!

The Staffords seem like really good folks.

How did they hear about your friends' kids?

I wanted to make a smart comment that all Lion gear is like 50% off everywhere anyway as they are horrible.  But Stafford has always seemed like a truly nice guy..his wife Kelly used to go haywire on social media but since her illness has really toned it down.  Good for Stafford's. :thumbup:

Awesome story.

Could we maybe fix the spelling in the title? 
 

Stanfords? 

Maybe he's confusing him with Andrew Luck.

Their aunt  entered them into a contest that Kelly and Matt put on.

I saw the video before I saw this thread.  Tragic circumstances for that family.  Matt is pure class and also one tough SOB.  I hope the Lions could somehow put a decent team around him.
