Now That's A Hall Of Fame Induction Speech

Monday, August 06, 2007

Let me preface this by saying I can't/couldn't stand Michael Irvin in College, In The Pros, or as an "analyst". He was the one (Billy "White Shoes" Johnson is a joke) who turned the position of Wide Receiver into the most egotistical group of athletes in all of Sports.

Sure part of this loathing was because he was a Cane, a Cowboy, and really really good. But he was everything that Art Monk (2nd greatest receiver ever in my eyes) was not.

That disdain then carried over into his post-NFL life and ESPN. I really can't stand his whole shtick, but this was one hell of an induction speech...


Does it bite off of Jimmy V a bit? Sure. But I genuinely believe that Irvin knows he made some mistakes in life, and you can tell he is grateful and honored to have made it to this point.

Dude is completely full of shit.

He's pulled this crap before, right after the bust for coke and hoors.

Went on a televangelist show and started crying and praising God and all that shit.

Did he put down his cousin's weed pipe yet?

The only reason he was crying was the smoke from the crack pipe got in his eyes.

He was crying because he knows that Art Monk should be before him.

So cynical... Tear snot is always genuine. You can't fake tear snot.

I was waiting for him to put up a 1-800 number where the true believers could send in money to help the cause. I'm sure Deion will try to top this one...sigh.

And what about Jerry Jones? I was waiting for him to say "this snake-oil medicine is only $19.95!"
