Why Derrick Nnadi is Leslie’s New Hero.

Hi, it’s Leslie Harris, back for night two of my permanent shift here at the River.

I admit, I am not a football fan. In fact, I barely watched the Super Bowl, but I was very excited to read a story about the Kansas City Chiefs defensive tackle, Derrick Nnadi who created Nnadi Foundation. He is celebrating his Super Bowl win by paying for the adoption for all of the adoptable dogs currently at a Kansas City rescue organization called the KC Pet Project. In fact, back in September, Derrick Nnadi pledged to pay the adoption fees for a dog every time he won a game.!

A spokesperson for the organization said, “We have had an amazing, season long, partnership with Derek and he couldn’t have thought of a better ending.”

If you won the Superbowl, how would you celebrate? (other than going to a Florida theme park?)

Let me know in the comments.
