    I had never read Kurt's backstory, but thank you, babymay, for posting it. It is so nice to read about a sports figure or celebrity like Kurt Warner. He is truly an inspiration. I always liked him, but now I like him even more. I will be rooting for him and Anna.

    In a supermarket, Kurtis the stock boy, was busily working when a
    new voice came over the asking for a carry out at check register 4.
    Kurtis was almost finished, and wanted to get some fresh air, and
    decided to answer the call. As he approached the check-out stand
    a distant smile caught his eye, the new check out girl was beautiful.
    She was an older woman (maybe 26, and he was only 22) and he
    fell in love.

    Later that day, after his shift was over, he waited by the punch clock
    to find out her name. She came into the break room, smiled softly at
    him, took her card and punched out, then left. He looked at her card,
    BRENDA. He walked out only to see her start walking up the road.

    Next day, he waited outside as she left the supermarket, and offered
    her a ride home. He looked harmless enough, and she accepted.
    When he dropped her off, he asked if maybe he could see her again,
    outside of work. She simply said it wasn't possible. He pressed and
    she explained she had two children and she couldn't afford a baby-
    sitter, so he offered to pay for the baby-sitter. Reluctantly she
    accepted his offer for a date for the following Saturday.

    That Saturday night he arrived at her door only to have her tell him
    that she was unable to go with him. The baby-sitter had called and
    canceled. To which Kurtis simply said, "Well, lets take the kids
    with us."

    She tried to explain that taking the children was not an option, but
    again not taking no for an answer, he pressed. Finally Brenda,
    brought him inside to meet her children. She had an older daughter
    who was just cute as a bug, Kurtis thought, then Brenda brought out
    her son, in a wheelchair, he was born a paraplegic with down
    syndrome. Kurtis said to Brenda, "I still don't understand why the
    kids can't come with us?" Brenda was amazed. Most men would
    run away from a woman with two kids, especially if one had
    disabilities. Just like her first husband and father of her children
    did.

    That evening Kurtis and Brenda loaded up the kids, went to dinner
    and the movies. When her son needed anything Kurtis would take
    care of him. When he needed to use the rest room, he picked him
    up out of his chair, took him, brought him back. The kids loved
    Kurtis.
    At the end of the evening, Brenda knew this was the man she was
    going to marry and spend the rest of her life with. A year later, they
    were married and Kurtis adopted both of her children and since then
    they have added two more kids.

    So what happened to the stock boy and check out girl? Well, .....
    Mr. & Mrs. Kurt Warner, now live in St. Louis, where he is employed
    by the St. Louis Rams and plays quarterback.

    Go Rams!

    I think they have 7 or 8 kids now...
    Unfortunately, most of the story as written IS fictitious. The REAL STORY is actually better.

    Kurt Warner is one of the most-loved athletes to have ever played in any sport here in the Phoenix area.

    Thanks for directing us to the real story - sometimes fact is more amazing than fiction!

    Kurt Warner is the real deal. He's a great man, husband and father. I adore him with every fiber of my being. I will vote for him to my fingers bleed. Yes, I'm a fan!

    A nice switch from hearing about the greed and egos of athletes who demand a $30 million pay increase and go bankrupt after buying every sports car out there, 20 homes, private jets, and a lot of overzealous parties.

    I'm so glad they got through to next week. Kurt reminds me slightly of Ty Murray so far, even in the face of criticism he kept on smiling. I think he and Anna are going to make a great team. Looking forward to seeing their jive (and sorry Rick, but I think he'll win this round).

    Kurt is a lovely man on the outside and it seems he reflects that beauty on the inside too. However, he is not the best dancer (but neither is he the worst). I hope he improves because this is one couple I'll be rooting for.

    IA and well said! Kurt and Anna are lovely together. They are well paired as I think Anna will be able to bring out his dancing ability. They will be enjoyable to watch each week-- can't help but like these two! I am rooting for them as well!

    Kurt is beloved in the NYC area, too, Chris and Dede. He only played one year for the Giants but he is such a great guy that he is loved by many Giant fans. He played for the Rams for many years before that, I think. Unlike a lot of the football players who have been on DWTS, though, he had much more of an up and down career and, for that reason, he probably doesn't quite have the net worth that some former football players do. So, I really hope he does well on DWTS to gain the increased exposure to have other opportunities in his post-athletic career.

    His dancing was horrible. I found myself scratching my head at the judges reactions. He may be a great guy, but I know what I saw. Lousy dancing.
