KURTIS THE STOCK BOY AND BRENDA THE CHECKOUT GIRL
In a supermarket, Kurtis the stock boy, was busily working when a new voicecame over the loud speaker asking for a carry out at register 4. Kurtis was almost finished, and wanted to get some fresh air, and decided to answer the call. As he approached the check-out stand a distant smile caught his eye, the new check-out girl was beautiful. She was an older woman (maybe 26, and he wasonly 22) and he fell in love.Later that day, after his shift was over, he waited by the punch clock to findout her name.
She came into the break room, smiled softly at him, took her cardand punched out, then left. He looked at her card, BRENDA. He walked out onlyto see her start walking up the road. Next day, he waited outside as she left the supermarket, and offered her a ride home. He looked harmless enough, and she accepted. When he dropped her off, he asked if maybe he could see her again, outside of work. She simply said it wasn't possible. He pressed and she explained she had two children and she couldn't afford a baby-sitter, so he offered to pay for the baby-sitter. Reluctantly she accepted his offer for a date for the following Saturday.
That Saturday night he arrived at her door only to have her tell him that she was unable to go with him. The baby-sitter had called and canceled. To which Kurtis simply said, "Well, let's take the kids with us."She tried to explain that taking the children was not an option, but again not taking no for an answer, he pressed.. Finally Brenda, brought him inside to meet her children. She had an older daughter who was just as cute as a bug, Kurtis thought, then Brenda brought out her son, in a wheelchair. He was born a paraplegic with Down Syndrome. Kurtis asked Brenda, "I still don't understand why the kids can't come with us?" Brenda was amazed. Most men would run away from a woman with two kids, especially if one had disabilities - just like her first husband and father of her children had done. Kurtis was not ordinary - - - he had a different mindset.
That evening Kurtis and Brenda loaded up the kids, went to dinner and the movies. When her son needed anything Kurtis would take care of him. When he needed to use the restroom, he picked him up out of his wheelchair, took him and brought him back. The kids loved Kurtis. At the end of the evening, Brenda knew this was the man she was going to marry and spend the rest of her life with. A year later, they were married and Kurtis adopted both of her children. Since then they have added two more kids.So what happened to Kurtis the stock boy and Brenda the check-out girl?
Well, Mr. & Mrs. Kurt Warner now live in Arizona , where he is currently employed as the quarterback of the National Football League Arizona Cardinals and has his Cardinals in the hunt for a first-in-franchise-history Super Bowl win!
Is this a surprise ending or could you have guessed that he was not an ordinary person.It should be noted that he also quarterbacked the Rams in Super Bowl XXXVI.
He has also been the NLF's Most Valuable Player twice and the Super Bowl XXXVI's MVP

Big 12 Counter - 2-2. The Huskers showed a lot of heart tonight against a much better Oklahoma team tonight. Sure, it got away from them at the end and it got a little chippy with Blake Griffin but overall - nice effort.

What a great win tonight by Florida and Tim Tebow. In the first half, the first 2 picks were so unlike him but he bounced back to throw for over 230 yards and ran the ball for over a 100. As a college player - he is 2nd to none in terms of heart and effort.
Told ya - Gators by 10. 24-14! 2 title in 3 years! Go Gators!

A lot of you guys who read this blog have emailed to ask about the comments section on this blog and message board off of BigSports590.com. Both have been removed by us for the same reason - the same people, everyday, writing nothing but negative and nasty comments. We were recieving lots of calls from parents and listeners concerned about what was being written on our sites.
This blog is linked to our main page so what happens on it gets the eye of Journal. The content isn't an issue - the fan involvement is.
So, thank you reading and I hope you will continue to do so but the comment section has been disabled until further notice. - Matt
PS - I'll write tonight about the state of the Jays program.
