By now everyone has seen the video of Matt Kemp giveaway gifts to a cancer striken young Dodger fan. I have seen it many times since yesterday. If you have not here it is
So in honor of Matt Kemp here are some humbling haikus
Swept by the Giants
Kemp comes up big with a kid
He Hit a Grand Slam
Cancer striken kid
Received jersey, ball and cleats
from goodwill Matt Kemp
Kemp could have walked out
After Dodgers lost series
But Kemp made us proud!
Stripped of self-pity
“Life is bigger than Baseball”
Said Kemp afterwards
We love you Matty!
At Kershaw Cy Young Award press conference, Kemp taking the time to pose with me.
Here is Kemp with Alyssa, a beautiful little girl that passed away with Cancer. Since that happened, Kemp updated his twitter profile picture with a picture with Alyssa.
Kemp stopped by to take a picture with me at the Bluetopia movie premier in 2008.
Here is Kemp again posing with me one day I was on the field prior to a game.
