    This was just on Fox. One of the Fox announcers has been helping out this sick little girl born with only half a heart. The Oakland Raiders flew her out to Oakland this weekend and have been treating her to all kinds of good stuff. She will be going to the game today. One of the Oakland players (I'm not sure which one) came up to her dad and handed the dad his game check to make sure the little girl has a good Christmas.

    That is such a kind gesture. Not including his bonus, post season game (year, right) income, and endorsements, thats 1/16 of his yearly income, a huge gesture. Hell, it could easily be 10s of thousands of dollars. What a nice thing to do.

    I agree, you can't. "Whose," is the correct spelling.

    By the way, thanks for pointing out that I didn't give the player's name, Mr. Obvious. Neither did Fox. I did point out in the posting that I didn't know the player's name.
