QUOTE OF THE DAY
Bills LB Arthur Moats on serving as a spokesman for the United Way and assisting a family who lost their home to a fire:
“When you are in position to help people out it definitely means a lot. It goes a long way for people. It could be something as simple as just smiling at somebody that could brighten their day and change the course of their life, so I felt like partnering up with United Way definitely is going to help out a lot. I’ve been through a similar situation. I know people who have had their house burn down. I know how hard it can be on you as a family. We just want to make this transition as smooth as possible. So if me coming in, eating dinner with them and giving them a couple of gifts can help them out and brighten their days up, well then by all means. You could just tell that everyone enjoyed themselves, and the time we spent together was a blessing.” via BuffaloBills.com
