    A happy hometown Thanksgiving
    To say Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings is loyal to his hometown of Kalamazoo, Mich., is perhaps an understatement.

    Jennings met his wife, Nicole, when they were in grade school. He starred in football at Kalamazoo Central High School and Western Michigan University, the latter also in Kalamazoo.

    So, for Thanksgiving, they donated more than 70 gift baskets of turkeys and groceries to people in need.

    Jennings explained it to the Kalamazoo Gazette: "It's one of those things where we just wanted to help out those less fortunate in the community and make their Thanksgiving Day better and a little less stressful in terms of trying to get food. It was definitely my wife's idea, and it's a great idea.''

    The baskets were handed out after Sunday's services at Progressive Deliverance Ministries, Church of God in Christ, where Jennings' father, Greg Sr., is pastor.

    I knew there was a good reason I liked GJ. Didn't know he was a PK. That's too funny.

    You gotta love those Michiganders as long as they play for the Packers or are Packer fans.
    Seriously, no matter who he played for that is tremendous.
    We are fortunate that he is a member of the Green Bay Packers.

    Greg Jennings turns water into wine so conjuring turkeys is a piece of cake.

    Can he be any more humble about the deed?

    "It was definitely my wife's idea, and it's a great idea.''

    It well becomes a young man to be modest.
