The 2008 NFL Hall of Fame Enshrinees

Posted: August 3, 2008 in Sports
Highlights of the induction speeches from the 2008 Hall of Fame enshrinees.
This is a great video!
Top ten players who haven’t made it into the Hall of Fame yet…

Four Pro Bowls, the 1981 MVP award and the first Super Bowl appearance in team history were not enough to get this Bengals legend into the Hall.

Marv Levy once called Tasker — arguably the greatest special teams player of all time — the most important man on the Bills’ roster.

Before he punched a horse on Blazing Saddles, Karras — nicknamed the "Mad Duck" — was one of the most dominant defensive players of his era.

Watters put up better numbers than many backs already in the Hall, but many recall his flamboyant personality more than his accomplishments.

With "The Snake" behind center, the Raiders were perennial contenders, playing in five straight AFC title games and winning a Super Bowl.

The fastest man alive may not have had the greatest hands, but "Bullet" Bob Hayes still managed to help revolutionize the game with his speed.

The "Ironman" of his era, Marshall played in 282 consecutive games, but this defensive end may own the most famous football blooper of all time.

Many said all Cris Carter did was "catch touchdowns," but the Vikings great ended his career second all-time in receptions, and, of course, TDs.

Derrick Thomas finished his career with 126.5 sacks and still holds the record for most sacks in a game with seven, which he set in 1990.

Kramer helped pave the way for the famous "Packers sweep," as well as five NFL championships in the 1960s for Titletown USA.


The 2008 NFL Season Gets Underway

Posted: August 2, 2008 in Sports
Well, it’s that time of year once again, and I couldn’t be happier. The 2008 NFL pre-season is here and my Seattle Seahawks will be playing a scrimmage at Qwest Field today in front of the fans. Wish I could be there, but oh well, I did the next best thing. I scored four 3rd row endzone tickets on Ebay for the Seahawks first pre-season game in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Only set me back $56. What a deal, huh?
This will be our first time in the Metrodome, and we are looking forward to it. Our only other chance to see the Seahawks this year will be in St. Louis on December 14. We’ll be there. Gametime is 7pm next Friday. GO SEAHAWKS!!

Brett Favre Retires

Posted: March 8, 2008 in Sports
Green Bay Packers quaterback Brett Favre retired this week in one of the most emotional retirement announcements I’ve ever seen.
Favre was the consummate team player in my opinion. He began his NFL career just over two months after Frank was convicted, and now, 17 years later has decided to call it quits. I doubt I’ll ever forget the second to the last game he played in this past season where his quarterback skills were just to much for my beloved Seattle Seahawks to handle. And he did it in one heckuva snowstorm. All I could do was shake my head. I really believe had the Packers beat the Giants and went on to the Superbowl to play the Patriots, the Pack would’ve won.
Here are three videos for those who might be interested…

Frank will get a kick out of hearing about this. Frank’s a huge boxing fan.

Hey, might even draw a chuckle from Billy Jack.
