kyle-orton-cereal.jpgBears quarterback and beard enthusiast Kyle Orton was nice enough sit down with the kids of Goodrell Middle School in Des Monies, Iowa for the day's most important meal when he participated in the "Take a Player to School Breakfast" contest on Tuesday.

And the game manager admitted that the economic recession has touched even the highest strata of society: NFL quarterbacks.
"In a world where NFL players often are associated with bank-account-busting sports cars, he drives a Toyota Prius. Understated. Efficient. More fundamental than flash. The car, in many ways, matches the man behind the steering wheel. "I don't splurge on anything," Orton said. "Everybody's in a recession -- so I'm saving my money."
The photo gallery complementing the article reveals an Orton who seems just as comfortable trading cartons of chocolate milk for apple slices with seventh-graders as he is reading a zone-blitzing scheme.

I guess you can take that any way you wish.
