Too often, we have to sit here and talk about the stupid things that athletes and owners do. Whether it’s Donald Sterling losing his mind, literally, or Jim Irsay checking into rehab, it gets a little discouraging to keep seeing these things. Thankfully, every now and then, a story like this with Jets owner Woody Johnson comes along and restores your faith in humanity just a little bit. Johnson has donated $1 million dollars to the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation that will help build “smart homes” for two injured army veterans that will accommodate their needs due to their injuries

One of those veterans, Sargent Bryan Dilberian, who lost three limbs while serving his country in Afghanistan, showed his appreciation to Johnson:

Via the Associated Press: 

It’s going to mean everything to me,” Dilberian said. “I’m not going to be relying on nurses coming to the house. I don’t have to rely on just, people just coming to help me. I love to cook. Now, this is going to give me the fundamentals to cook again.”

If that doesn’t make your day just a little better, you want to reevaluate some things in your life.
