Sock Progress

It's amazing how quickly these things move when the mojo is there.

Next week at this time, I will be watching the Hall of Fame game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Cincinnati Bengals.  Did you hear?  T.O. signed with the Bengals earlier this week.  Him and Ochocinco on the same team--I've got my popcorn ready.

Emmitt Smith is being inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame Saturday.  Now you may be wondering why I didn't write a long, eloquent post about him, as I did for Bob Hayes last year.  Well, the thing is, Emmitt was a shoe in, and deservedly so.

IRVING, TX - NOVEMBER 20:  A banner hangs from the rafters commemorating NFL All-Time Leading Rusher and  former Dallas Cowboys runningback Emmitt Smith during the game between the Detroit Lions and the Dallas Cowboys on November 20, 2005 at Texas Stadium in Irving, Texas.  The Cowboys defeated the Lions 20-7.  (Photo by Ronald Martinez/Getty Images)

There was never any doubt that the NFL's all time leading rusher would be a first ballot Hall of Famer.  Never. There was never any anti-Cowboy bias to overcome, nor a drug riddled past. 

4 Oct 1998:  Runningback Emmitt Smith #22 of the Dallas Cowboys runs with the ball during a game against the Washington Redskins at the Jack Kent Cooke Stadium in Landover, Maryland. The Cowboys defeated the Redskins 31-10.

We all knew he would waltz right in,

and The Triplets would finally be together again.

So, there really wasn't a whole lot to say about it. Because, in a way, he's been there all along.
