When your hero turns out to be your friend

This week, ESPN Sportscenter has been presenting a series of Make A Wish stories, in which sick or -- in the worst cases -- dying kids are granted a wish to meet some sports star.

OK, I get that ESPN and Disney probably has motives that extend beyond plowing some of their mammoth profits into doing something decent, but the fact is they did something decent and if that's what it takes for more decency in the world, then that's what it takes.

Put that aside for a moment, though, and you're left with very gifted athletes -- very, very rich athletes -- doing something decent too.

This morning's segment was with New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees. (Watch) Over on the right side of the page you'll see links to the other segments this week.

Here's a box of Kleenex.
