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.
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.
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.
