I was moved by the video story of the four football players who entered a store that was closed (but the doors were open) and after selecting a few items and looking for the clerk, they ACTUALLY left money at the register:

Here’s the story:

Four football players from William Paterson University went shopping at a general store in Wayne, N.J., on Sunday afternoon. After spending several minutes trying to locate the store clerk, two of the players who needed sunglasses and batteries were captured on store security cameras leaving money at the register.

Buddy’s Small Lots store manager, Marci Lederman, was taken by their honesty.

“They picked up a few items, and they left cash on the counter and waved to the cameras,” Lederman told Yahoo News. “Who does that?”

Apparently the store was closed!  I am sure the NCAA will suspend them several games for some sort of rules violation:  Maybe improper gifts arising from the store was actually closed!  Can’t have athletes doing that!  After all Manziel got to sit 30 minutes in a meaningless game against Rice this weekend!  The odds probably changed from: Give me Rice and a 100 points to give me Rice and 50!

The major football powers and the Division I Basketball powers ought to give the NCAA the heave-ho and get some sort of super commissioner program.  Remember what the Jerry “The Shark” Tarkanian once said:  “The NCAA is so mad at Kentucky, it’s going to give Cleveland State two more years’ probation.”   (I got the quote from here!)  Poor William Paterson!
