Adrian Peterson: Vikings' Peterson Treats Football Fans to Dinner in Las Vegas
Adrian Peterson Gives Football Fans a Treat in Las Vegas
Apparently Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chad Ochocinco isn't the only NFL player that randomly takes strangers out to dinner.
When a couple spotted Minnesota Vikings star Adrian Peterson outside the Bistro Buffet at the Palms Casino and Resort Friday night in Las Vegas, they asked him if he was indeed Adrian Peterson.
Peterson, according to TMZ.com, responded with his catchphrase and nickname, "All day."
Then, out of nowhere, he asked the couple and about a dozen other people to join him for dinner at the buffet.
When all was said and done, Peterson had a handful of new loyal fans and a $400 tab.
You gotta love it when athletes do this.
We've all seen the egocentric and rich scoff at everyone around them, sometimes the result of the same attention us fans give them.
But when they turn their attention to us and remember what it was like to be humble and giving, that's where sports truly transcend just being sports.
A lot of athletes don't realize how much an impact they can have given their fame and wealth, that living in mansions isn't the only thing in life.
We always knew Peterson was an upstanding individual; he's demonstrated this throughout his brilliant career.
But his actions Friday night in Las Vegas, however insignificant they may seem, are the kind of things that get fans through an NFL lockout.
