6 Year Old sends Piggy Bank Money to Keep Brandon Jacobs

Great story, Kid gives his piggy bank money to help Jacobs stay in NY.

"Joseph is just learning to read/write so I will help you by translating his letter:

"'Dear Brandon Jacobs,

"So you could go to the Giants, here is my money.

"Love, Joe'

That was awesome. Jacobs has been known to say stupid things from time to time, but he handled this very well.

Great story and good on Jacobs!

GO NINERS!

I bet the father was expecting to get all this attention for his son. Starting them young. Classy gesture for Jacobs to offer to bring the kid to Chuck E Cheese.
