Andre Johnson is coming to town!!!
The Houston Texans wideout has once again gotten into the Christmas spirit early and donned his Santa Claus cap by treating some kiddies to a HUGE Toys R' Us shopping spree!
This has become a holiday tradition for Andre, who gives kids hand picked by Child Protective Services 80 seconds to grab as many toys as they can stuff in their carts! Oh, and did we mention they also all get a gaming console to top it all off??

Sometimes it's hard to pick up the pieces and move on after suffering through a tragedy.
But, NFL wide receiver of the Denver Broncos Mr. Eric Decker has responded with an inspiring video to the survivors of the Arapahoe High School shooting that happened this past December 13th.
And Eric isn't just speaking from theory, either. The football player went through his own scary situation while going to high school in Minnesota in 2003 when two gunmen entered his school and killed two female students. Eric and other students had to hide in the library for 45 minutes that day.
We can't imagine going through either situation, but we know that sticking together and not keeping emotions on the inside, is very good advice.
Check out his inspiring video (above).

We love pizza as much as the next person, but we had no idea it could be so hazardous to your health!!
Detroit Lions wide receiver Nate Burleson broke his arm in two different places late last night in a one car accident near Farmington Hills, Michigan when he drove into the center divider on Interstate 696!
But when police got to the scene, they said that crash had nothing to do with alcohol. It was actually caused by pizza!!
Nate was driving by himself at about 2:25 a.m. Tuesday morning when a box of pizza began sliding off the passenger seat. The footballer became distracted by the falling pie, and the rest is history!
Michigan State Police Lt. Michael Shaw was called to the scene and explained the bizarre incident:

At a Missouri high school, Linda was a senior and prom was approaching… and she was considering not going!
She suffered from cerebral palsy but loved Missouri Football, so her family thought, who better to take her to prom than wide receiver T.J. Moe and quarterback Corbin Berkstresser?

Hey! A celebrity was finally kind of, sort of punished for breaking the law and putting other lives in jeopardy!
Just kidding, but what else is new?
Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Hines Ward was arrested for a DUI in Georgia last July after cops pulled him over for driving pretty recklessly.
The wasted NFL player was apparently swerving in and out of his lane, then hit a curb before being pulled over and eventually charged.
Well, he's not going to jail, but he's been sentenced to 12 months of probation, plus 80 hours of community service as part of a plea deal in which he pled guilty to reckless driving to get the DUI charge dropped.
He's also gotta pay $2,000 in fines and court costs, but that's the easy part for celebs. What about his license? That should be the first thing to go when ANYBODY gets caught driving under the influence!
Does anyone else feel a little uneasy that prosecutors agreed to drop the DUI charge entirely? If Georgia is that lax about driving drunk, we're not sure we want to risk our lives on those roads!
