    A.Green buys #30...Simmons shows class!

    the Associated Press reports Houston Texans RB Ahman Green bought the No. 30 from FS Jason Simmons. Simmons agreed to give up the number if Green would make a down payment on a home for a single parent. Green said, " He said what he wanted to do and I said: 'Yeah I'm all on board. That's easy.' Tell me where to write the check to. So instead of putting the money into his pocket, he's going to put in into somebody else's home, house and help them get their life started."
    You got to respect anyone that is willing to give up something of his own to help out another in need.
    "It is hard to wait around for something that you know may never happen;but it's even harder to let go when it's everything you want"
