Where is Bono, Sir Bob Geldhoff, 50 cent, Ludicras' bus is parked at my branch bank here in BR., Snoop, et al? Warwick Dunn has stepped up and challenged all NFL players to put up 5K; ya'll hold your players feet to the fire.
My first shot at this; I'll do better next time. Where is Bono and Sir BOB?????
Don't you know that celebrities get to take their own sweet time in deciding whether a tragedy merits their attention. It's only President Bush who is expected to be standing on the levee... I guess with a bucket... as the storm comes ashore.
PO'd seems to be a common theme right now... join the club.
I saw someone asking about you this morning or yesterday but can't remember who.
Did they say my name and their wife's in the same sentence??
Witness the untimely sinking of S Penns effort. I think they are just being "cautious" this time. I'm sure they'll be along with something magical.
Na, wondering if you'd made it along with other La. based FReepers.
Nicolas Cage donates to relief effort
John Grisham to donate $5M to Katrina relief
It's Warrick Dunn. :D Not Dionne Warwick. :D
"Anybody can throw money around at these people, but they need love," said Horn, who spent three hours signing autographs, holding babies and playing games with children. "They need to be able to feel me. So when I leave, I hope they feel a little better."

New Orleans Saints receiver Joe Horn talks to an unidentified family at the Houston Astrodome Saturday, Sept. 3, 2005 in Houston. Horn visited the dome to give the displaced residents from New Orleans hope and for thousands of Hurricane Katrina refugees inside the Astrodome, meeting him was a much-needed morale boost.
Horn has apparently also given $15,000 to his own family that was directly affected.
Hey, I forgot to put the plug in my uncle's boat back in 1960 at the "Hi House" on the Butte La Rose bayou ; sank it, and never made that mistake again. After that fiasco as we were pulling the boats (2) out I ran over the gas tank. Budweiser was in control; blame it on Busch!!
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - To encourage contributions to the Gulf Coast recovery efforts in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation has established a program for Patriots players, coaches and employees to make donations in support of the hurricane relief efforts. If players, coaches and staff choose to make a personal financial contribution to a sanctioned non-profit organization that is working directly with disaster relief, the Kraft family, through the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation, will match those contributions for the first $100,000 raised. The New England Patriots are represented by five players who attended Louisiana State University; Eric Alexander, Kevin Faulk, Marquise Hill, Randall Gay and Jarvis Green. These players and the entire Patriots organization thank our fans for keeping the hurricane victims in their thoughts and prayers.
WOW! What's the average salary in the NFL? THREE MILLION?
One of my neighbors (a fireman) said that each NFL team was giving a mil each. Haven't seen it in the news though. A NASCAR driver and his boss contributed their winnings tonight to the cause. And it was the drivers first win.
chump change for the first string.
If you knew anything about Warrick Dunn you would not be making snide comments about his caring nature.
Your comments must be directed at somebody else.
I made no "snide remarks" about him.
This is a late response to an old post. I am from Baton Rouge; I remember the night that Betty Smothers was shot; the city turned out for his family, Mr Dunn did it right. He has continued to support families on an annual basis. I have nothing but the utmost respect for what Warrick has done for Baton Rouge. I'd heard early that he had challenged all NFL'rs to a 5K donation. Mr Dunn is one of the best from Baton Rouge. No snides
