A Quality Role Model

Why Josh Cribbs is My Favorite Browns Player

By Brianna Savoca

Joshua Cribbs won my heart yet again after I logged on to Twitter this evening, but it had nothing to do with his incredible athleticism on the football field.

I saw this tweet, from Cribbs, wide receiver and special teams player for the Cleveland Browns.

Cribbs may be on the special teams and kick returner for the 2010 Pro Bowl, but this pro is clearly a special person who puts others before himself.

Also from Cribbs:

Cribbs shines on the field as the Browns 2009 MVP, and AP All-Pro First Team member, plus holds the NFL record for two kickoff returns for two touchdowns in a game (against the Kansas City Chiefs). Now, Cribbs shines off the field as a philanthropist, humanitarian, and beacon of hope for the Haitian people.

Thank you Josh Cribbs for putting Cleveland and Browns players in a good light, despite our 5-11 record this season.

Pretty vs. "Perfect"

By Brianna Savoca

Heidi Montag, 23, spent the past seven weeks in hiding, recovering from 10 plastic surgery procedures, according to People Magazine.

"The Hills" reality TV star reportedly got neck, waist, and hip liposuction, Botox, a mini-brow lift, a butt lift, a chin reduction, fat injections in her cheeks, a nose job fix, and upgraded her already fake boobs to a size DDD.

This begs the question: Hollywood, Spencer, media, and culture- what have you done to this poor Colorado girl?

Heidi came to Hollywood for "The Hills" after being raised in Crested Butte, Colorado. At the beginning of the series, the petite natural-looking blonde was naive and sweet, and played the role of Lauren Conrad's endearing best friend and roommate.

Now, Heidi has been turned into a plastic, living Barbie doll. Reportedly, Heidi is obsessed with plastic surgery and wants to be "perfect."

Heidi, you were perfect just the way you were when you first walked on to "The Hills."

As a young woman who regularly posts Bible verses on Twitter, take a lesson from Him.

Genesis 1:27 God created us in his own image.

You are beautiful Heidi and God made you beautiful on the day you were born, without the plastic surgery.
