Had Jerome Bettis not turned into a Hall of Fame football player, it's not unreasonable to imagine him as a ruthless dictator.
Shortly after Hussein became the president of Iraq, he donated $250K to Chaldean Sacred Heart church in Detroit. As a reward for his generosity, then-mayor Coleman Young gave Hussein the key to the city in 1980. As thanks for receiving the key to the city, Hussein gave another $200K to the church to pay off their remaining debt. Not to be outdone again, Hussein was rewarded for his charity by having his country attacked by the United States. Twice.
