I'm sure this kind of thing happens somewhat often but it doesn't get enough publicity compared to all the negativity in the NFL. Late in the Saints-Panthers game last Sunday night, Smith scored a TD and brought the football back with him to the sidelines. He walked up to the stands and handed the ball to a young boy wearing a white Steve Smith jersey. It turned out to be the son of the one of the guys in my fantasy football league, a 5 year old die-hard Panthers fan at his first ever football game. After the game they went to where the Panthers team buses were then Steve got off the bus to come over and sign the football for him. I didn't get the whole story about that until tonight, I had only seen the pictures. I thought they got lucky and he was walking out from the locker room and saw them. They actually told another player walking by that this was the boy Steve had given the ball to and asked if he'd be willing to sign it. The player went to the bus and told Steve, who then got off the bus at that point and came over. Again, maybe this is pretty common. If it is, it's a shame you don't hear more about it. Regardless of whatever opinion any of us have about Steve Smith as a football player, props to him for doing something so simple that will be a lifetime memory for a young football fan.
