Next Time You’re Out To Dinner, Hope That Kurt Warner Is There

Posted by Mike on September 29, 2008

The next time you’re at a restaurant with your significant other, scan the restaurant and pray that you see Kurt Warner somewhere in attendance. Out of all the people you wanna to see in a restaurant, Warner’s gotta be like what right above Dennis Quaid ? I mean who would care if they saw Warner is a restaurant right ? Well, according to the NY Times, before every away game, Warner and his family go out to dinner at a nice restaurant, and every time they go out, they pay the bill anonymously to someone else’s tab. So come December 21st when the Patriots are set to take on the Arizona Cardinals, you better believe that on the 20th, I will be stoned and eating at one of the finest restaurants around Patriots place, hoping that Kurt Warner and his family feel bad enough for me to pickup the tab. More from NY Times:

At dinner, Warner and his wife, Brenda, will sit back and watch as one or more of their seven children scan the dining area like a quarterback going through his progressions on the field.

Once they target a table, Warner, the Arizona Cardinals’ quarterback, quietly adds that dinner tab to his own. At a steakhouse here last Saturday, a family of four received a free meal without knowing the identity of their benefactor.

The Warners cooked up the idea many years ago, after their food-stamp-cashing days were behind them and Warner had become the toast of St. Louis by leading the Rams to victory in the 2000 Super Bowl.

They thought it would be a playful way of instilling in their children the joy of giving. “We want our kids to grow up knowing that because of football we are so blessed,” Warner said Wednesday. He added: “We never want them to lose sight of what it’s really about. Our circumstances are not the most important thing. It’s what we do with those circumstances.”
