    Rivers' commitment impresses
    That's a really cool story IMO. Shows how much commitment and loyalty Rivers has. A lot of athletes would've loved to use that flight delay as an excuse to not show up to something yet Rivers decided to go out of his way to keep his commitment and deliver the speech.

    Too bad all the other teams fans only see the "Talking" he does on the field.

    That story just makes me admire PR that much more. Most guys would have packed it in. But yeah, I have kids too and that would have been a nice break just to get away from the kids. I bet PR was just cruisin in his car with the window open singing some hillbilly songs out loud all the way there. :lol:

    For the record, his "car" is a pick-up truck, and it's not even new...

    Not surprised one bit by this story. Philip Rivers is simply a good man above all else.

    I honestly don't even care about people whining about his "smack talk" anymore. I just tune them out for the idiots they are.

    Ditto. PR has been the MAN for a long time now, maybe the rest of mankind is comming around to this realization.
