Dude, Thanks for the Car!

Superbowl-winning quarterback Tom Brady presented the five linemen responsible for guarding him all season long with brand new Audi Q7 SUVs. Granted, the gesture was part of an event to raise money for charity, but it was still nothing to be scoffed at.

Brady isn’t the only sports figure who made the news for giving gifts to teammates. Shortly after the Lakers’ Kobe Bryant won the NBA’s Most Valuable Player award, his teammate Luke Walton jumped in at the end of a press conference to ask Bryant when he would be giving gifts to his team. Bryant responded that he was planning something special.

These two athletes are helping to put a macho spin on gift giving to improve their relationships with their teammates. While you might not be able to dip into a million-dollar paycheck to finance a gift for your pals, even something as simple as buying a round of beer can show how much you care. [Houmatoday.com]
