For 24 hours, let’s sweep aside all of the stories about cheating, lies, deception and crazy motherfuckers who refuse to pay their bills.

Instead, here’s a positive story about a professional athlete bringing joy into a Sacramento family’s lives during a time of year that is usually filled with heartache.

From The Mercury News:

The family’s patriarch, Army Sergeant Martin “Mick” LaMar, was shot and killed on January 15, 2011. LaMar, who served with the Marines and Army, and who was a veteran of the Gulf War, died on his wedding anniversary. It also was the day he was scheduled to deploy home from Iraq. He was survived by his wife Josephine and five children — one, a daughter, that he never met.

Enter Kittle, who awarded the tickets in conjunction with @USAA, an official NFL Salute to Service Partner, and the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors.

“As I hit the field to play in the Super Bowl, I find comfort in the fact that 49ers fans Josie and Nicolas LaMar will be cheering our team on,” Kittle said in a statement. “It’s a special privilege to be able to team up with USAA and TAPS to award a trip to the Super Bowl to Sergeant LaMar’s family in recognition of his military service and paying the ultimate sacrifice in service of our country.”

And that, gentlemen, is how you move into the top 10 on the list of guys who can plow my sister. Great work, George.
