During the barrage of negative publicity surrounding the Packers, this story about John Kuhn making one little boy's dream come true kind of slipped under the radar. That's a damn shame, because it's just a fantastic story. From the team's website:
On a gloomy and rainy afternoon, 10-year-old Colton Brandenberg's smile lit up the inside of a limousine at Best Buy when Packers' fullback John Kuhn opened the door. His one wish was to spend a night shopping and dining with his favorite Packers player, and it came true on Monday.
With assistance from Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Green Bay Packers' community outreach department, young Colton spent 90 minutes inside Best Buy shopping for his favorite video games and CDs, among other items, before enjoying a meal at the nearby Texas Roadhouse. Kuhn also presented Colton with a bag of Packers related autographed items.
"It was awesome," Colton said after shopping with the five-year NFL veteran.
Read the whole thing. Awesome indeed.
