Come on guys. Really? Publicity stunt or not, it was a cool thing to do and it brightened this guy's day.
That's my point, partially. He didn't do it to brighten the guy's day as much as to make him feel good
--or as a publicity stunt. A millionaire hooking a guy up with a motel room, food, and calling the local health care office for a social worker consult isn't heroic. Heck it would take less time than the movie and be done for under $100. That would have been trying to make a difference.
And why isn't Romo going to the movies with any teammates?
He could have also kept on walking
I underlined the above, because even though that is not why we should help people or give to charities, but it is the reason we do....to make ourselves feel good.
Sorry, I lack clarity. Romo's good in this deed was born of selfishness, or a special needs type of simple mindedness. He wanted to do something nice so he and/or Homeless could feel good. That isn't the same as doing something good.
We give to charity in the hopes that we will help improve the quality of someone else's life. Taking someone to a show helps improve his day, but does relatively nothing to improve his life. So that good deed lacks depth and quality. But made Romo feel good....
Or was a publicity stunt.
Spodog: There is no reason to call dream's dad stinky !! Show some class!
Or reveal it! To some "Stinky" is a term of endearment.
LS2throwed: But hey, maybe he wasn't even homeless, maybe Romo paid an actor to look homeless, so he could make himself look even better, that's probably what REALLy happened
Oh, you're good. I never thought of that angle. Does anyone know where TO was during this alledged good deed?
flotsomnjetsam: This story is an urban myth leaked to the media by Jessica Simpson's father. Next up: Pacman Jones takes a homeless man to a strip club and pays for a lap dance.
Thank you, thank you, thank you. Jessica Simpson, strip club, lap dance. Thank you.
