Another story about a professional athlete. I can't help it, you see, if these guys are going to be our "heroes" I want to promote the ones who have the attitude I like, not the drug addicts, dog killers, woman beaters, and child abusers.
This is Adam Jones, a baseball player for the Baltimore Orioles, not to be confused with Adam Jones AKA "Pacman", a football player who fits some of the above undesirable criteria.
Another feel good story about someone who has their head on right - he doesn't sound like your typical professional athlete, but I am hoping that's only because we read more about the "Pacmans" of the world instead of the Adams.
