ExBadger, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson receives a handmade-from-duct-tape wallet from a young girl who needs a heart transplant.

A sweet story.

What a nice story and what nice people.

What a good guy!

It's sad that the girl had a heart problem, but she got her heart transplant. Sad that whoever gave up that heart died.

It's sad, though much less sad, that Aaron Rodgers has a broken collarbone and the Packers are doing terribly this year. But for those of us in Wisconsin, we remember Russell Wilson when he was a Badger, and we can transplant our fan feelings to the Seahawks.

Seattle is falling in love with this guy!! He has the feet of Fran Tarkenton, the brains of Roger Staubach, and he's all-round good guy.

Go Seahawks!!

"we remember Russell Wilson when he was a Badger"

I suppose it was a glorious three months. Are the Wisconsin fans so easily bought that they feel affection for a hired gun who enrolled for one season to improve his draft standing?

If I were a Bucky booster, I'd have been rooting for Tolzien to do better with the Packers.

A real feel-good story. Thanks, Ann.

For those of us in North Carolina we remember Russell Wilson when he was a member of the NC Wolfpack, and we can transplant our fan feelings to the Seahawks..." except when they play the Panthers.
