One Word – CLASS
Larry Fitzgerald is a wonderful guy and a tremendous athlete and I try to attend all of his events on-top of being a long time Season Ticket Holder.
However I didn’t attend his Morton’s Steak Dinner Charity Event this year because the last couple times I’ve been around Larry he seems disconnected and almost rude to be around.
I was at this years Cardinals Luncheon and I watched him act like an — to fans while they asked for pictures and autographs. (On top of the odd disposition he didn’t even sign his normal signature). – I hope it was an off day or whatever but it was enough to make me pass on the Morton’s Dinner this year which I hated doing especially because Cancer is a huge part of my life – my wife had her thyroid removed and then at 28 she had to have a hysterectomy because of cancer and she continues to fight it and stay strong. My wife “Mindy” loves Fitzgerald as do I not just because he’s the greatest WR in the NFL but because he does a lot to raise money and awareness to help fight cancer. The fact that he loss his mother to cancer and how he still cares years later is amazing and makes him our favorite athlete. I hope the next time my wife and I are around him he’ll be back to the happy smiling guy that we like. ” I would hate for my wife to see that other side of him because he’s the reason she goes to all the games with me”.
I hope the dinner went well and all those who attended and shelled out the $500 a plate had a blast.
Cards for Life.

I have seen that more than once from Larry. My daughter and I worked with the Anquan Boldin Foundation and we brought about 50 underprivileged kids to his celebrity softball games the past 2 years. Last year with Anquan and this year Q could not make it(just got traded). Larry only spent about 5 minutes once between innings to sign anything for the kids. He did pose for a picture, but did not really engage them at all. He knew we were with Anquan’s foundation and I have to be honest we were disappointed as we were in the front row behind his dugout. I know I am going to get ripped for this but it is the truth. Overall I think Larry is a great guy, and a great receiver, I hope he can get healthy and help us win Sunday.
