There are many professional athletes that hate attention. They won't sign autographs, won't pose in pictures, and do all they can to ignore fans. Then there are some who fully embrace it and understand how important fans have been to their careers. I mean, what's the harm in talking with fans and taking a picture or two? Simple gestures like this give fans a great story to tell that sticks with them forever. Why don't all athletes do that? Because there are some jerk fans that take advantage of these situations.
That's former RB Jamal Anderson posing with some fans. That was awful nice of Anderson to take a picture with this group of complete strangers.
Oh, and he also bought them eight rounds of shots. I'm sure plenty of people would be willing to buy his drinks but he was nice enough to buy drinks for others. And how did these guys repay him?
By doing the Dirty Bird, the dance he created, over him when he passed out at the bar. Wow. I'm surprised they didn't pull out the sharpie and give him a uni-brow.
