A tale of two Frostees — or one Frostee, one Frosty

Posted by Darren Urban on July 22, 2017 – 8:51 am

Just before Frostee Rucker headed out to training camp — he actually got to the hotel Thursday night — he had finished a workout when driving home he saw a gentleman walking by the side of the road in the heat.

“It looked like it was going to take some time for him to get where he had to go,” the defensive tackle said. “Sometimes you have to take yourself outside of the box. I’m not really a fearful guy – I feel like I’m a servant in a way – and I pulled over and asked if he needed a lift and he actually did.”

The man’s twitter account (he later tweeted at Rucker to thank him for the ride, which is how the whole situation came to light) lists his name as Crispin White. Rucker said he didn’t have to drive White far. “But it didn’t matter,” Rucker added. “Wherever he had to go.”

But that’s not the best part of the story. The two began a conversation on the ride, and Rucker let White know his name was Frostee. White perked up.

“He said, ‘Really?’ ” Rucker recounted. ” ‘Well, that’s my nickname.’ ”

The man’s nickname was Frosty with a “y.” Frostee — his given name, don’t forget — spells it a little different. But it was an interesting twist on Rucker’s Good Samaritan gesture.

    Frostee helps Frosty. That’s good Karma – a Buddhist monk would become enlightened! He’s our D-Line Leader!

    This was truly a case where it was a good idea to accept a ride from a stranger.
