CFL player is now crime fighting in his spare time

Look Ma! A story involving a football player that isn't negative!

Kitwana Jones
, who played college ball at Hampton and is now a defensive end for the CFL's Eskimos, was driving to a pancake breakfast on Tuesday morning (seriously!) when he spotted an old woman screaming for help and chasing after a man carrying her purse and laptop. Then the thief knocked down an old man who tried to get in his way and Jones sprung into action. He jumped out of his car, took off after the suspect and then leveled him with a blindside tackle.

Saw this on Deadspin. What a great story although this reminds me of the Terry Tate commercials on so many levels.
