Really Following Through On That "Giving Big" Business

Pro-Bowl Tight End for the Kansas City Chiefs and Oprah's Big Give judge, Tony Gonazalez, solidified his status as resident good guy when he saved a stranger's life last week.

Apparently, Gonzalez was out to eat when he saw a man sputtering and turning blue. He leapt into action and performed the Heimlich maneuver, despite not having any formal training in the lifesaving procedure.

Mr. Modesty wasn't planning on the news of his heroism getting out. He didn't even tell some members of his family.

What a class act.

Oprah's probably going to eat this up!
