friends of mine had a daughter (who passed-away in August 2009) who was visited by Polamalu (at-least once?) while she was hospitalized for months on-end... said he'd come unannounced, visit with children, then leave without saying a word

Great to see that Polamalu story!
Sanchez has a very inspiring story too...one that wasn't supposed to get any press...the Jets weren't going to talk about it, and Sanchez was going to keep to himself, but the kid's family didn't want his actions to go unseen...great story.

c'mon now... our new jetsfan friend is just trying to keep up with the joneses, and his little game of one-upsmanship shouldnt go unnoticed.

while not a great football player, sanchez does sincerely come across as a good genuine guy, and im not suprized he would follow in the footsteps of a great USC alumn (atleast he didnt go the OJ route... yet).

i certainly hope more atheletes are doing things like this that we dont know about.

Sorry JETSallday, we don't all feel this way.

Not to take away anything from what Sanchez did, but something always bothers me when athletes talk about their good deeds.

Just sharing a great story. I'm inspired by Polamalu and all kinds of stories, like the Sanchez one, and thought some people might be as well.

we can be friends after the game, I get fired up for the games by hating the opposition. been that way since I played football as a kid growing up, that part of me won't ever leave. shake hands after the game's over lol (unless it's the patriots)

Some things just go way beyond football or sports.

That was a really good read (as was the OP of course). I'm glad he got to meet his idol. Sounds like he was a really awesome kid. Thanks for posting.
