BarkingUnicorn: I'd be seriously creeped out if a total stranger called me as I lay gunshot and jonesing for morphine in a hospital.
eltejon: Tebow wouldn't have needed to use a phone.
Jack's Cracker: I don't think Manning qualifies as a "total stranger". They may not know him personally, but they certainly know who he is.
Aar1012: eltejon: Tebow wouldn't have needed to use a phone.He would have just healed them
jaylectricity: Am I the only one that completely forgot that Peyton Manning signed with the Denver Broncos?
CruiserTwelve: [i162.photobucket.com image 240x180]Big deal. A bunch of other Broncos paid personal visits.
The Smails Kid: jaylectricity: Am I the only one that completely forgot that Peyton Manning signed with the Denver Broncos?Yes.
CruiserTwelve: Big deal. A bunch of other Broncos paid personal visits.
Hobo Jr.: Still gay for Kenny Chesney.
vegaswench: jaylectricity: Am I the only one that completely forgot that Peyton Manning signed with the Denver Broncos?No, but then I love Peyton and am a Raiders fan, and it makes me sad I'll have to root against him now, so I suppose I am in denial.
srtpointman: The funniest thing about this thread is that in the "congratulate the cops" thread people were going batshiat crazy saying he cops weren't heroes. But a football player makes a phone call and everyone is ok with the hero tag?
balki1867: I'll just leave this here: Spend time with your kids, so Peyton Manning doesn't
Hoban Washburne: I'm not a fan of Peyton Manning. He annoys me. However, I've never heard of him doing anything super douchey, and he seems like a pretty humble guy especially considering he was the best (if not top 2 or 3) quarterback in the NFL for a number of years.
uofacats2004: I doubt any of us can find an account of Peyton Manning doing something not socially acceptable.Or to put it delicately, doing something dickfacey. But he's not a HERO.However, just the fact that he reached out is cool and it's ridiculous for anyone to call him out for not doing more.I'm sure he wasn't calling the hospital and demanding patients' names so he could play a pre recorded message to them.Any time any athlete does anything like this is admirable in my book. I'm not a Chad Johnson fan but he has done a lot of stuff off the field that could be either considered egotistical or empathetic. I choose to think that they are doing it because they care.Just me.
BarkingUnicorn: Jack's Cracker: I don't think Manning qualifies as a "total stranger". They may not know him personally, but they certainly know who he is.But how would they recognize his voice OVER THE PHONE?And how did this total stranger get my hospital room assignment, even if he is Peyton Manning?
skinink: Er, hospital room, not hotel room. Kobe would call rape rape you in your hotel room.
SilentStrider: Aar1012: eltejon: Tebow wouldn't have needed to use a phone.He would have just healed themladies and gentlemen, get off the internet. Aar1012 has just won it for themselves, and you're now trespassing.
