Tony Gonzalez saves lives

Last week, Tony Gonzalez was having a nice family dinner with his wife and daughter when someone at the next table, in what was clearly a failed feat of manliness, tried to swallow a too-large piece of the probably not too well prepared Filet Mignon and started choking. Lest he be publicly maligned for watching a man die, Tony Gonzalez felt obligated to at least attempt to help him, saying, "I couldn’t just sit there and do nothing."

When Gonzalez realized nobody was doing anything to help him, he jumped up and rushed over to the man and performed the Heimlich Maneuver.

Somehow, this sounds like an overly elaborate marketing ploy for the upcoming movie, Choke (If you haven't already, read the book).
