    I was pulling for the Cardinals anyway, but now I'm even happier to do so.

    Go to Google and type in Kurt Warner Story, and then go to snopes and read the real storie about this email that has been going around. Still a great guy, but snopes points out the inaccuracys of the email.

    I live by St. Louis, Mo & have been a season ticket holder for the Rams since they moved here, 5 yard line & seven rows off the field. Warner is absolutely amazing as a player & more so as a human being. Very community oriented. He & his wife still operate a program for coats for kids in St. Louis every winter. On the news last week, they had collected over 7,000 coats this winter for the kids. (the Cardinals were the football team in St. Louis before the Arizona move) With those two things in mind, I'm rooting for Kurt all the way. It is an unbelievable success story. He was getting hurt alot here the last 2 years, no offensive line. Glad he was traded before he got killed out there. Colonel

    Whether the story is true or not, Snopes can no longer be considered accurate or reliable.

    Not sure why snopes can't be considered reliable or accurate.

    They at least try to be reliable and accurate, and dispel internet BS, which is more than I can say for most of the BS e-mails floating around the internet that folks claim to be true.

    I like Kurt, too; especially when he thanks Jesus when he gets interviewed after a game. I just wish he wasn't playing against the Steelers. It's so bad in my family, we buried Dad with his Terrible Towel! He loved the Steelers even when they stunk up the joint in the 60's. Come to think of it, we're Pirates fans, too. Must be masochists.

    The supermarket was a HyVee store at the College Square Mall.
