Say what you want about Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder on the football field, but off the field he and his family provided one family with a shopping experience they will never forget.

According to CBS and WCCO in Minneapolis, Justin Robbins took his kids, Brianna and Emily, on a shopping trip to help ease the pain of their mother Maggie's death earlier in the month.

Per the report, Brianna recognized the Ponders and approached them with the family. After learning why the Robbins family was shopping, Christian and his family offered to pay for ANYTHING the girls wanted.

Sometimes in life the unexpected happens, and the nice of people really shows. The Ponder's and Robbins' family will now forever be connected through this special moment.
