I've seen various versions of this story today and it's well worth the read.
Former Georgia and current Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford made a heartwarming gesture toward a little boy at a fundraising auction for the children's hospital at the University of Michigan over the weekend. He paid about $15,000 for a travel package to send the family to the Detroit-Chicago game on Monday Night Football this fall. It's a really sweet story.
The version of the story recounted by the little boy's mother is even more moving.
