Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Pierre Garçon has relatives in Haiti, that small island country just south of America that none of us could find on a map last week. “Garçon means boy.”
Garcon said Thursday he got calls earlier in the day from relatives, who let him know they had survived the earthquake that devastated Haiti two days earlier.
Garcon said his mother received a call from a relative on Wednesday night. “I heard from some family, got some good information,” he said. “We’re still looking for the rest of them.” –Canadian Press.
Also rounding up relatives in Haiti is soccer player Jozy Altidore, but unlike Garçon, the USMNT player is making plans to go back to the country. Garçon is expected to play Saturday, and he should. It’s not like any buildings fell on him.
