While the Arizona Cardinals are off this week before OTA’s get started back up next week, they are busy representing themselves and the team proudly
Have you seen the story of Arizona Cardinals tight end Jermaine Gresham paying for an airline passenger’s carry on fee when she didn’t have a credit card? How about receiver Larry Fitzgerald talking to kids in Ohio?
Sure, we already know what stand up individuals these guys are but this further solidifies what good men the Cardinals employ. Fitz has been at it for years. Gresham goes about his business quietly.
Both are great men contributing to society outside of football. Gresham’s story is pretty darn cool.
He was at the airport and came upon a passenger who had just returned from Europe. She had extra baggage and was going to have to pay $50.
All she had available was cash because her credit card company did not know she had returned from her trip yet, so her card was restricted. The gate attendant would not take cash and was directing her back to the ticket counter at the front of the airport.
In to save the day was Gresham. He heard what was going on and stepped in and laid his credit card down to pay for the $50 fee. The passenger, Delilah Cassidy tweeted about the entire event.
Fitz meanwhile spent time at a Toledo, Ohio golf course to talk to a group of kids. He talked about how they are our future and he wants to do his part to “equip these young people with whatever they need”.
These guys are just two of many on the team that spend countless hours of their time giving back and helping others. Many times, Cardinals players spend their one day off a week during the regular season going out into the community.
Though Gresham still has something to prove on the field he is definitely a winner off of it. We all love Fitz as well. They both represent the team well and just two of many reasons we can be proud to call ourselves Cardinals fans.
