Red Roses From Big Blue Star

So how did everyone spend their Valentine’s Day? Turns out, for those fortunate enough to have been in Times Square between 11 a.m. and 12 p.m., the answer was, “with former New York Giants running back Rashad Jennings.” The former NFL star, who last played in 2016, made a surprise appearance in New York City, handing out red roses courtesy of 1-800-Flowers in an effort to spread romantic kindness. The 2017 Dancing with the Stars champion, who sported a bright red bowtie for the occasion, also paused for selfies with admiring fans.
