Santonio Holmes "Immaculate Extension" Gloves bring $70,200

First there was the Immaculate Reception when Franco Harris snatched the deflected pass from his shoe tops and raced for the Winning Score against the Oakland Raiders in the Playoffs. That was the most famous play in Pittsburgh Sports history and now we have another and it's being called the Immaculate Extension.

Santonio Holmes went high in the air to grab the winning pass from Pittsburgh Steeler QB Ben Roethlisberger to win Super Bowl 43. That pass play will go down in Steeler history as one of the greatest sports moments of all time.

In an era where there seems to be a lot of negative things being said about athlete's being role models and the mistakes they have been making it feels really good to write this story. Santonio Holmes has been no saint as he has had his problems but what he did last week in Pittsburgh should be told because this is what being a sports figure should be. This is something that our kids can look to and admire.

Santonio auctioned off the gloves he wore when he caught the winning TD in Super Bowl 43 with all proceeds going to the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America, Inc.

Santonio's 6 year old daughter suffers from the disease. Santonio's gloves brought $70,200 in the auction. So once again in an era where people are more concerned about what strip clubs the athlete's are going to or if they are doing steroids or not it's good to hear of a athlete giving something back for a good cause.
