Kid needs to get his priorities in order.
He could have bought a Disney movie on his Kindle Fire for this type of money.
Maybe Joe’s parents bought him a Brandon Jacobs jersey, and he’s tied his six-year-old hopes and dreams to that talisman.
Joe grew up a bit this offseason when Jacobs was released by the Giants, who would have owed him $5 million, and he signed with the 49ers. It’s a little hard for a child to understand why someone he likes has to leave, but his mother explained it the best she could: “The Giants didn’t have enough money to keep him.”
Joe (via his mother) sent Jacobs this letter and $3.36 to get him to return to New York. “So you could go to the Giants, here is my money. Love, Joe.”
Jacobs posted it on Twitter and said he would visit the kid, what he didn’t make clear is where the $3.36 went.
If I had to guess it went to something on the McDonald’s Dollar Menu.
Jacobs should take the kid on a shopping spree, since he might be the only fan Jacobs has.
