    Not sure if this belongs in Off-topic or NFL zone, so i put it here.

    This photo of Houston Texans star Andre Johnson holding a ridiculously long receipt from Toys 'R' Us blew up on Reddit today, and there's actually a great story behind it.
    Twelve kids, aged 8 to 16, who are in Child Protective Services were given 80 seconds to grab as many toys as they could, and Johnson picked up the tab.

    That's awesome.

    Best part is the Supermarket Sweep aspect. I'm betting a couple stopped off to snag some meats and cheeses cause those are the big money getters.
