Who is the next Michael Irvin of the NFL Hall of Fame this year?
With emotional candidates like Shannon Sharpe and Deion Sanders being the favorites, will we actually end up seeing one of the elders shed a tear? Here are the http://www.SorryBroSports.com/ odds on which NFL legend delivers a speech that will get himself to cry.
Shannon Sharpe 2/1
- He drops more tears than footballs in his career tonight. Expect the tears to stop when he campaigns for his brother Sterling to get a bid next year.
Deion Sanders 5/2
- He will speak about all the young teenagers he helps focus on school while being talented football players and a few tears will leak out. Then he will gloat how Deion Sanders Jr. is going to bring back "Prime Time" to the NFL in 2016. If he speaks about his baseball career, more tears should come.
Speak on behalf of Les Richter 11/2
- Sadly Les Richter will be unable to give his own speech tonight, but someone will represent proudly for the former L.A. Rams linebacker.
Ed Sabol 7/1
- The founder of NFL Films will be entering as a contributor to the success of the NFL after being partnered with the NFL since 1964 and began to show NFL Championship games since 1962. This will be his last contribution to the NFL before he goes back to wherever he has been spending his retirement for the last 15 years.
Marshall Faulk 10/1
- This is actually biased just because I heard him give an awkward interview with Dan Patrick last week and he seems more angry than happy about something. Could a possible Michael Jordan-like Hall of Fame speech be coming. Does he have hatred for the Colts for giving up on him?
Chris Hanburger and Richard Dent 20/1
- NFL Hall of Fame inductees between the age of 50-70 do not cry. Dent, along with Hanburger, is the least likely player from the bunch to shed a tear tonight. Defensive players have no emotions except for anger. Like Dent says in the infamous Superbowl Shuffle, "I like to dump guys on their ass!" Nobody who dumps guys on their asses cries.
While Hanburger was known for his mental preparation and toughness during his playing career. Like I said for Dent, only emotion he will feel tonight is anger. The happiness from getting elected to the NFL Hall of Fame won't outweigh the anger that made him, along with Dent, legendary defensive players.
NFL Hall of Fame inductions is tonight in prime time on ESPN and the NFL Network.
