I would neglect to mention this:
HALL OF FAME, BABY!!!!
Not a chance that I would let this go by. Too many close calls, too many (2) seasons under Wade Phillips, too many years of retirement speculation in the Denver Press during the early 90s (after the SB busts and the slow circle around the bowl that marked the end of Reeves’ and Phillips’ careers in Denver). Plus, he drove the SB 32 parade right in front of my office.
So much for the adopted team. The “hometown” guy (Barry Sanders) got in too.
If I was in the HOF and my Dad introduced me as “THIRD best” I would kick his ass.
