    There's something about kids reaching out to professional athletes that I find endearing. Kids don't care about the politics and finances of sports that adults do. They don't care about salary caps and luxury taxes, they just love the games.

    When 49er's RB Brandon Jacobs got this letter from a young Giants fan, he nearly cried. http://larrybrownsports.com/football/six-year-old-fan-brandon-jacobs-giants/140144

    When that kid at the Heat game 2 days ago said "good job, good effort" 60 times after the Heats loss, people flocked to him. http://www.ngngsports.com/2012/06/the-good-job-good-effort-young-heat-fan-has-been-found.html?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=the-good-job-good-effort-young-heat-fan-has-been-found

    Even a letter from a young fan to 49er's WR Kyle Williams after last years devastating playoff loss got to some people.

    Kids have a great way of putting things in perspective. Even Wes Welker one of the NFL's best WR's had some bad times, but people still love him.

    Just keep kids from Philadelphia out of the news, those kids are something else.

    If that "GOOD EFFORT! GOOD JOB!" kid remains a Heat fan for more than 3 more years, he'll be an alcoholic too.

    The Kyle Williams article proves how pathetically low humanity can be.

    That is the beauty(sarcasm) of the internet. It allows anonymity for those to cowardly to do anything that really matters.
