Those of you who have linebacker Scott Fujita on your All-Hair fantasy teams may want to add him to your All-Philanthropy rosters as well. (Everyone plays fantasy football like this, right? My All-Felon All-Stars just won a third straight league title.) The erstwhile Saint is heading for Cleveland a scant month after winning a Super Bowl, but he's leaving New Orleans with a little something to remember him by:â†µ
He gave half of his Super Bowl check to charity, half of that going to relief efforts in Haiti, and the other half going to coastal restoration in New Orleans. From nola.com:
"The people of this city and region have been so good to me and my family that we just felt strongly about doing something to protect the city we have come to love so much, " Fujita said. "And helping on the coastal issue has been on the back of my mind since I first got here."
There goes a man with a heart as shiny and sleek as his coif. And he's Browns-bound, bless him, which has to count in his karmic favor, somewhere.
