Rick Reilly has often found himself the butt of jokes on Toucher & Rich, and his alter ego — Vick Reilly — has occasionally bombed at open mic comedy nights as well, thanks to the program.

But Reilly’s latest story — which praised four college athletes from William Paterson University for not shoplifting at a store — was too bad for Fred to ignore.

The story details four football players who entered a store, unknowingly after it had closed. With no cashiers to take their money, they left cash on the counter and left.

“Imagine young men paying for items they took from a store! This is unbelievable!” Fred exclaimed. “Rick, you have finally found something to warm our souls! What a feel-good story! Something that everybody does every single day!”

As if that wasn’t enough, Reilly ended his story by quoting a player who said “You can’t judge a book by its cover.” Reilly then wrote: “Somewhere, I hope George Zimmerman is listening.”
