J T Thomas (Bears...): Classy Big Guy

Let's offset some of the stories about total jerk athletes, eh?

Joslyn Levell longed for a dance partner.

Yet no one would accommodate, until Bears sixth-round pick J.T. Thomas -- an outside linebacker from West Virginia University -- stepped in after a chance meeting. Thomas asked Levell out for the date of a lifetime Friday night at the Suncrest Middle School prom in Morgantown, W.Va.

...unlike most little girls, Levell also has spina bifida, a birth defect which occurs -- according to the Spina Bifida Association of America -- in seven out of every 10,000 births in the United States, and confines her to a wheelchair.

And there are plenty of good Green Bay Packer stories out there, too.
