Kevin Smith, RB for Detroit Lions: Feel Good Story of The Week

Sure, sure, we all hate when pro athletes get too big for their britches, and demand gazillion dollar contracts, and then go in the tank for the rest of the year (can you say Chrissy Johnson of the Titans?).  Some grind their teeth when some million dollar baby makes a freakin first down when his team is hopelessly behind in the fourth quarter and he celebrates as though he just scored the game winning T.D. in over time.  Others are really grated when some over-paid prima donna refuses to give a kid his autograph. Well, to somewhat counteract those feelings, I give you Kevin Smith.  Here’s how he celebrated his best game evuh.







Yup, that’s him thanking God.  You see, he was out of football, not offered a job by any of the thirty two professional teams. He was not offered a contract by the Lions this year, and nobody else wanted him. He had the choice to either keep working out religiously ever day, five days a week, or to move on with his life and give up his dream of playing football. He stuck to his dream, got a shot when Detroit’s top two running backs got injured, and the rest is history.
