For all of the unfortunate news that football has brought us this past week, I for one believe it is refreshing to see something positive from one of our fanbases’ favorite wildcats. According to Buffalo news station WKBW-TV, Johnson decided to give back some of his NFL wealth by paying for a lucky woman’s groceries at a Buffalo area Wal-Mart:
Email that was sent into WKBW:
“My Twin daughters recently moved back home and took over some of the chores of the household to lighten the load for me. One of those chores was grocery shopping. While they were at Walmart in Hamburg, they got behind Stevie Johnson of the Buffalo Bills and did not know who he was.
He told them someone blessed him and now wanted to bless them. He paid for all of their groceries worth over $100! The cashier finally told them who he was and they were completely ecstatic!! So nice to see them giving back to the community I have always been a Bills fan but he just gained two new groupies !! THANK YOU STEVIE JOHNSON !!!”

Not long before his good deed, Stevie tweeted this little diddy out to his followers on Twitter:
bout to bless somebody at Walmart. (Whoever behind me in line won’t be paying for anything they have.) #thxbuffalo

I think I can speak for most of us here in the Big Blue Nation when I say well done Stevie, well done indeed.
