    The media doesn't do that.

    Pep - Bling Bling!

    I just heard about this. I think it was a nice gesture on Daunte's part, but who in their right mind would actually think that they were getting a hundo g's worth of jewelry just given to them?? The kid shouldn't expect anything from Daunte at all, but he'll get something anyways or the media will be all over his booty

    I feel bad for Daunte, what an Awkward situation. Jeez, just cuz he is a proffesional athlete doesn't mean that he just gives out 75,000 dollars to anyone.

    The kid should have left the ceremony immediately after Daunte handed him the bling. jk

    The kid should not have put Daunte on the spot in the first place.

    I agree, SKOL.
    If I was the kiddo,I would've bounced right on out of there...sold it, and enjoyed the finance.
    What was Culpepper thinking? If someone -don't care who they are- asks you to give them some of that bling bling, and you jump up and EXCITINGLY give it to them, what are they suppose to expect? I'd sure think he was ACTUALLY giving it to me...no strings attached. Had the lad left immeidately after receiving the bling bling...sold it for some cash, I doubt it if he would have gotten in trouble. Who could blame him?

    Well first of all, he was in a wheelchair so his escape would not have been swift and unnoticed. And secondly, Everyone knows how much that neclace means to Daunte, and there would have been ALOT of pressure on th kid to give it back. If I was in Dauntes shoes, I would have let him wear it too. What are you supposed to do when a fan puts you in the spotlight and asks what may or may not be a retorical question. In my humble opinion, this is the kind of stuff that only gets this much attention when you give 2 weeks preperation for a super bowl that most likely will be one sided. Now I hate Daunte when he puts on that jersey, but he was just being nice and got screwed.
