With regard to Mark Sanchez and that hot dog scene in Oakland:

 

“Sanchez just bought 500 hot dogs and hamburgers, along with buns and rolls, and donated them to the Community Soup Kitchen in Morristown, N.J.," the Jets announced on their Twitter page.


"That's pocket change for a guy who signed a contract earlier this year that guaranteed him $28 million," wrote Chris Chase of Yahoo! Sports.

 

"But it's still a kind, meaningful, and amusing gesture from a 22-year-old who could instead be living up to the stereotype of a spoiled, rich-kid quarterback."

 

In a related story:

 

“JaMarcus Russell, QB of the Oakland Raiders, just bought 500 hot dogs and hamburgers, along with buns and rolls, some coleslaw, potato salad, and a few pumpkin pies, and ate them by himself.”

 

Coach Cable remarked, “He’s a 'growing' franchise QB…and we may need to get reinforced benches on the sidelines."

 

How about that JaMarcus is living up to the stereotypes of a spoiled, rich kid quarterback?
