Emmett Smith: Here's a class act
This guy, David, was with his 4-year-old son and Emmett Smith was there. Airport, maybe? I don't know where. Anyway, David brings his son up to Mr. Smith to introduce him and get Emmett to shake his hand. And David says to his son something like, "This is Emmett Smith, a great football player and hero."
And Mr. Smith shakes the little boy's hand and then says, "Hey, I want you to meet a real hero." And he takes the little boy by the hand and walks him some 20 feet to where there's a service member in uniform. And Mr. Smith says, "I'd like you to meet a real hero,"
Now that's a class act. Plain and simple.
