The nerve of some people … stealing football memorabilia from a child. Following Donald Driver’s Charity Softball Game when the Green Bay Packers wide receiver threw his used cleats into the crowd of attendees, this crazed Wisconsin woman did just that. Claiming that she thought Driver tossed one of his cleats to her, Robyn Ereth selfishly ripped it out of the hands of 12-year-old Stephen Wagner.
Wagner was noticeably upset following the incident – and rightfully so. I mean, what kind of human being does that? Anyway, the story went viral and Driver took to Twitter and Facebook to track down Wagner in order to “get him the cleats he deserves.” In this social media-crazed society in which we live, it didn’t take the footballer long to find him. On Monday night, Driver met with Wagner and gave him all sorts of Packers gear, including a pair of cleats.
For a professional athlete to take time out of his busy schedule to spend time with a fan and make things right is absolutely amazing. Driver could have simply went about his business and not done anything. Going above and beyond like this really proves just how great of a role model he is.
