Im on my phone and was on reddit. I came across a story about ap, who some were quick to judge only a few weeks ago about his tragic incident. The media loves to spread negativity but I thought some would enjoy this...

Last night I was working on the Vikings Redskins game. After the game and after the postgame interview, just about everyone had left. Adrian Peterson was riding in a golf cart back up to the locker room. I happened to be walking up the tunnel at the same time when these two little kids (five or six years old) started cheering and screaming for AP. He had the guy driving the golf cart stop. Then, after tossing each of them an armband, he untied his cleats and gave each of the kids one of the shoes. No cameras around, the driver and I and maybe one other person saw. I then shook his hand and said great game, respect what you just did and that sort of thing.Really was awesome seeing a star player do this on his own without the cameras rolling. Made these two kids utterly elated and it put a smile on face just watching. Any other similar stories/experiences?

Years ago, when I was around 13, I made my way into the tunnel after a Steelers game. Joe Greene was limping after a battle on the field, he was headed back to shower up and have the trainers look as his right leg. I called to him a few times and he actually acknowledged me and stopped for a second. I told him that I thought he was the best ever and he gave me that…"yeah, sure" type of response. He seemed bummed out so I offered him my beverage. He was reluctant to take it but I insisted. You could tell he was dehydrated because he sure did drink it down quickly. I turned around to exit and told him that I'd see him around. Before I got the the entrance of the tunnel, he yelled, "hey kid…catch" and he whipped my empty coca cola bottle at me so hard that it shattered my orbital bone. God, I hate the Steelers and Joe Greene.

A friend of mine, who happens to be a diehard Vikings fan in NY, was collecting donations for Hurricane Sandy victims around this time last year. A friend of his is an NFL sideline reporter for Fox. They had been speaking about what he was doing, spending a lot of time, effort and money on getting food and supplies to victims of the storm. He [my friend] gets a phone call from her on a Sunday afternoon after the Vikings game, which she had been working, was over. He answers and she says I've got someone here that wants to speak to you. Sure enough, she puts Adrian Peterson on the phone. He's elated, telling AP how much of a fan he is, and AP responds something to the effect of, I'm a bigger fan of yours. What you're doing is great and I have a lot of respect for you - please tell me what you would like me to donate to help the cause. I believe he ended up sending some autographed gear which my buddy went on to auction off to help raise more money for the victims.

Nothing major but just affirms that AP is truly one of the good guys out there.
