Madieu Williams in Sierra Leone

New, comments

I caught this story on the NBC Nightly News and had to share. Minnesota Viking Madieu Williams talks about his personal mission to improve the lives of people in the country of his birth, Sierra Leone. This has absolutely nothing to do with tomorrow night's game between the Vikings and the New Orleans Saints, but after reading stories about so much bad behavior and the off-field antics involving NFL players, it's nice to hear a story about an NFL player who's trying to do something good with his fame and fortune. That he's also a Viking, well, that doesn't hurt either.
