I love seeing shit like this. You gotta love when elite pro athletes realize the power that they have and use it for good. This 7 year old boy named Baylen wrote this on a piece of paper his teacher handed him in class and now he gets to talk to his favorite player on FaceTime today.
The internet may cause a lot of fucked up shit, but it’s things like this that make it all worth it. Michael Thomas is one of the realest, most humble guys in the entire league. I’ve watched him go from Ohio State WR (S/O THE Ohio State) to one of the best players in the entire NFL. Through that journey he hasn’t for a second lost site of who he is or where he came from. It wasn’t all that long go he was that same kid wanting to meet Randy Moss and now he’s the guy that all the kids are looking up too.
This is the kind of story I need to warm my heart in the midst of gambling on basketball all day everyday for a month straight. In the words of Rico Bosco, “Some things are bigger than sports.”
