Found April 16, 2013 on Chicks in the Huddle:
Every time Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola drops a pass this year, I’ll be cheering. Not because I’m a hater but because Amendola has pledged to donate $200 for every dropped pass to a Boston Marathon Relief Fund. But you don’t just have to root against Amendola. For every pass he catches, he’ll donate $100 to the fund. It’s enough to make even a Jets fan cheer on a Patriots player catching the rock from Tom Brady. Amendola’s heartfelt gesture is one of the many ways the sports world is reaching out to those affected by the senseless tragedy in Boston. Philadelphia Phillies Outfielder Ben Revere had the message “Pray for Boston” on his glove at last night’s game. And check out this full page ad in the sports section of the Chicago Tribune. The terror attacks on the Boston Marathon killed three people, including an 8 year old boy, and injured more than 140 others. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims.
