Gonzalez Gets Props From Bush, Obama


Tony Gonzalez is the man. First, his diving catch and INT break-up during practice today, then the current President and likely future one singling him out for his life-saving good deed. The entire Chiefs nation should consider itself lucky on a daily basis that Tony G wears the Red and Gold. Today is all about future franchise player Glenn Dorsey, but let’s take a little time to appreciate our current cornerstone, too. From ESPN:

RIVER FALLS, Wis. — Saving a man’s life has brought Tony Gonzalez praise from the current president and possibly the next one.

The Kansas City Chiefs Pro Bowl tight end met Sen. Barack Obama during a campaign stop in California, and the Democratic candidate for president congratulated him for stopping a man from choking to death.

About the same time, Gonzalez opened his mail and read a letter from the president and first lady Laura Bush.

“The President said, ‘Thank you for helping out your fellow human being,’ ” Gonzalez said Saturday. “He said he and Laura wished me good luck in the upcoming season.”
