Warner picks up dinner tab for 20 Steelers fans
Cardinals QB continues tradition, even during Super Bowl week

TAMPA, Fla. - Warner and wife, Brenda, have a family tradition of picking up the check for another table whenever they eat out. The Arizona quarterback didn’t let team allegiances get in the way.

While dining Friday night at The Cheesecake Factory in Tampa, the Warners selected a group of 20 Pittsburgh Steelers fans and paid for their meal. Warner’s Arizona Cardinals play the Steelers for the Super Bowl title on Sunday.

“We started doing that when we were in St. Louis and the manager would always give us our meal for free whenever we ate out,” Brenda Warner said earlier Friday. “I had been a single mother living on food stamps at one time who couldn’t ever afford to eat out, and I never understood why people give free meals to people who can afford them.”

The Warners started a tradition of allowing their seven children to pick one family in the restaurant, and they try to quietly pay that table’s tab before slipping out the door.

“It’s gotten to be part of a game with the kids,” Brenda Warner said. “They’ll say ‘Oh, that family has a lot of kids, dinner must be expensive.’ Or ‘They look old, maybe it’s hard for them to afford eating out a lot.’ We try to be discreet about it, because we don’t want people trying to get picked.”

For anyone curious, Warner had the Old Fashioned Burger (with bacon) and a lemonade, while Brenda Warner had the Bang Bang Chicken and Shrimp.

What's funny is I used to feel this way about Kurt Warner. Hated. No idea why. He's a great player. Seems to be a great father, husband, and human being. He's tough. No real reason to hate him other than I just wanted to.

Gotta tell ya, he's growing on me. And this story hasn't hurt. I might even actually cheer for the Cards today... we'll see... :D

I'm sorry, aren't she and Kurt doing exactly the same thing?

These people they are picking up the tabs for are people out planning to spend the money for their meal.

You want to be altruistic, go to the welfare office or the unemployment office and pick out a couple of people and take them to dinner.

This is just fucking stupid.

All I'm saying is that she makes it appear that she is sharing with people who can't afford to eat out because she was unable to afford to eat out at one time in her life.

The fact is, most of us could stand to have a few extra bucks, and it is a nice gesture, but don't present as anything else.

She presents it as more than it is, and that is what I think is ****ing stupid.

Not every act of goodwill towards another human being has to be charity. If I hold the door for someone to walk through, it doesn't make me an ass because I didn't seek out someone in a wheelchair. Of course, If I did, someone like you would chastize me for not seeking out someone who couldn't afford a wheelchair.

I get what you are saying, but I disagree. She made a reference to her own past to help whomever was interviewing her understand her perspective. Because of the way the reporter worked it into the story, you are leaping to the conclusion that she in some way believes she is feeding the ultra-poor.

I think the quote below referencing how her kids pick a table does a better job of capturing the intent.

“They’ll say ‘Oh, that family has a lot of kids, dinner must be expensive.’ Or ‘They look old, maybe it’s hard for them to afford eating out a lot.’"

Cynicism comes naturally for everyone....when we see a high profile star we want to believe that they are doing something inherently good. But unfortunately, in the end we sometimes tend to find many altruistic endeavors are for publicity alone.

If you look at the past history of the Warner's you will find many instances that show this wasn't anything but what it was meant to be....an act of kindness. They are known for their charitable works and contributions to the community.

I have always admired Kurt Warner because he appears to be a WYSIWYG kind of guy. He's the feel-good story of this Super Bowl....and that's OK with me.

That's a pretty awesome story. Maybe good Karma for today.

One night after a Chief's game many years ago we were sitting in the restaurant across from the stadium. Can't remember it's name and it's gone now. Anyway in walks Carl Peterson with some young hot lady. They sat down at the table next to us. This was during the Marty years when I still liked Carl so I didn't interrupt them.

SOB never offered to pay for our dinner and it was pretty evident we had been to the game. It was at that moment I realized he was a prick.

All I'm saying is that she makes it appear that she is sharing with people who can't afford to eat out because she was unable to afford to eat out at one time in her life.

The fact is, most of us could stand to have a few extra bucks, and it is a nice gesture, but don't present as anything else.

She presents it as more than it is, and that is what I think is ****ing stupid.

Yes, but I think you're overblowing the story. I'm sure the story was picked up because the restaurant owner or a family or an observer saw what happened and thought it was a feel good story. And I'm sure when the story was picked up, the reporter asked Brenda Warner why her family does what they did. And did she lie during the interview? No. She simply pointed out that she carries on this tradition because someone did the same for her years ago--she's essentially paying it forward. I see nothing in this story that indicates for a second that Brenda Warner asked for this interview and intentionally called attention to herself.

If she was truly looking for attention, she would have announced to the entire restaurant that she was buying meals for 20 or she would have had a news station come by and tape them paying for the meal. That's what people do when all they are looking for is publicity. But this is a clear case of two people doing something generous, somebody else recognizing what they did, and then being asked why they spontaneously did something generous. Based on my experience in the St. Louis community, I can assure you that this is 1 of hundreds of good deeds Brenda is being recognized for. So if she wants to brag about it, that's fine--because she also deserves credit for the other hundred great things she has done for the community that the media has never picked up or that Brenda has never bragged about.

I see your point that maybe it's not considered a generous act focused on feeding the hungry, but it has the intention of being one.

Only at the Planet people can find ways to bash people for paying for another table's meal. Good grief. Grow up people. If the Warner's paid for your meal, you'd be pretty happy about it and posting on how great of people they are. Instead, this story makes the news because it's freaking Super Bowl week and the stories out there are weak, and people try to find a way to put them down. Unbelievable. Have a heart people.

Absolutely and I don't wish to deny him such. My problem is when he or anyone else wears them on their sleeve and blathers on about it. Actions like his speak louder than his words, IMO.

They do both. What is wrong with that? Why didn't you just vote for Hillary and not discuss your beliefs? You could have donated to her campaing anonymously and pulled the lever, but you chose to encourage others to believe the same way you do.

The Warners believe that God has played an important role in their lives, and they want to share that with others. I don't recall reading that they only pick up the tab for Christians. They have money to share and feel that the money might improve someone's life, so they share it. They have faith and believe that faith might improve someone else's life, so they share it. Of the two, they probably consider money to be the lesser of the two gifts, but I wouldn't expect a person of no faith to understand.

That's a pretty awesome story. Maybe good Karma for today.

One night after a Chief's game many years ago we were sitting in the restaurant across from the stadium. Can't remember it's name and it's gone now. Anyway in walks Carl Peterson with some young hot lady. They sat down at the table next to us. This was during the Marty years when I still liked Carl so I didn't interrupt them.

ROFL yeah he should pay for everyone's dinner that goes to a game

Kurt Warner talks about his faith because people ask him about himself and it's important to him. He's not calling press conferences to spread God's word. He's granting interviews and he has the right to say whatever he wants. As far as I know he has been loved and respected in any locker room he's been in regardless of the other players' faith so it's not like he's an asshole about it.

All he does is elevate the NFL from its current perception of thugs, drug users, and dogfighters. I have a few friends that won't watch football (gasp!) because they hate supporting jerkoffs like Pacman and Vick. Warner can say what he wants.

Agreed, and he's said "im sure people are sick of hearing this but..." and then talked about jesus and whatever else was on his mind, he isn't stopping the presses to announce it. So let him do whatever he wants, he's a good guy, i don't see why people have issues with what he says when asked.

what's funny in your eternal quest to discriminate, you fail to realize is that that is exactly what their faimly is doing by being generous, except that the message is being heard, by their actions.

Personally, I can't stand Kurt Warner, and this unhealthy desire to kick him in the nads, but I would still endorse the idea of bringing here to groom Sanchez.
