For a blog with 44 posts, this may be quite a leap, but what the hell. I'll post a HoF nominee every so often.
tCHoF Nominee #1 - Emmitt Smith (the Wordsmith)
Walterfootball.com did the dirty work for me, but Emmitt Smith is a first ballot HOF. Congratulations, Emmitt, you've successfully removed all of my images of you as a football player and replaced them with this. Can you even remember when Emmitt played football?
Like Ruth or Chamberlain, Emmitt the Wordsmith achieved legendary status in my mind. It could be:
Grammatical - "He turn around and go deep on Dre' Bly"
Factual - Attempting to quote Jimmy V's "Don't give up. Don't ever give up." "Don't quit. Don't ever quit."
Biting analysis - "The leadership definitely have to come from the leaders."
!$)%# - "Eli Manning has been given the rice of passage."
HOF worthy -
"Don't worry about the game you just won or the team that we just blew out... uhhh... blown... blown out... Let's think about what we need to do going forward, and they had... blown out. "
"You cannot change the stripes of a leopard."
"...Go to Arizona, sharp as a whistle, and do some finishing touches, so we can go down in the Super Bowl and play our best football of the whole entire season."
"The strength of the Patriots, their offense, got... DEBACLED."
Congratulations Emmitt, you set the bar high
