Leinart bowls with his buddies

Matt Leinart turned 26 Monday, but he was apparently in more of a giving mood. So he – through his foundation – decided to host a bowling outing with 30 kids from the “Best Buddies of Arizona))" group. Joined by teammates Lance Long and Tim Castille, Leinart hosted the group with special needs in large part because of his mom's influence. She had worked as an administrator for the Orange County department of special schools, and Leinart had always wanted to give back to that segment of children given that it was so important to his mother. And in the end, Leinart got a birthday party out of it too, with a cake and a rousing rendition of "Happy Birthday."
