You want to go to games together, talk about plays, and plan weekends around the tailgate parties. But she says no. What do you do?

It’s hard to deny how infatuated our society is with the lives of our favorite celebrities and their relationships.  We sit with our friends and gossip about each of them on a first name basis as though they’re our best buds.  We fawn over their fame, fortune and good looks.  But it’s the rich and famous stars who handle their popularity with a dose of humility that give us a real reason to love them.  Having it all and making top headlines in the media is one thing, but the way they act off screen or outside of the studio is what really exemplifies who they are as people.  So, let’s put aside the celebs with an attitude and stuck up demeanor, and give credit to the ones who have their feet planted right here on Earth.
