There's a nice, short, article in this mornings chronic's. nfl notebook about Dante Hall finding a "unique" way to honor his mom for mothers day. He bought her a house. Nice gift from a grateful son to be sure, but hardly meets the definition of unique. IIRC our own Earl Campbell did the same thing for his mom :love: in 1978 after signing his Oiler contract.
This article was sandwiched in between John McClains column. Surely John knows better. No biggie, just can't let a KC player steal Earls thunder. (no reflection on Dante, actually just another sports writer with a short memory)
Very nice gesture all the same.

Main Entry: unique
Pronunciation: yu-'nEk
Function: adjective
Etymology: French, from Latin unicus, from unus one ómore at ONE
Date: 1602
1 : being the only one :

Hope this is not percieved as bashing Dante. Just giving Earl his props.

When compaired to other multi-millionairs it isn't that unique, but compaired to your average person its a big deal. I cannot remember a time in which someone I knew bought their mom a house.

Although it isn't "unique," it is a very generous gesture and probably brought mom to tears. Sometimes boys can do significant damage while rough housing at home, so it could be damage replacement with interest. :jk: Way to go Dante! :)

What a nice gesture from a loving son. I hope she lives happily in her new home. She deserves it. :)
