Jerry Rice retired from the NFL today instead of being the 4th or 5th receiver on the Broncos roster.
I was hoping that he would find a place in the line-up, if only because he's a living legend, but it wasn't to be. Younger guys, faster guys, hungrier guys all have more to play for. The last few years, Jerry Rice wasn't playing for pride, championships, records, more money, or any of that crap. No, Jerry was playing for character. And character is a rare thing these days, indeed.
So, so long, Jerry. We barely knew ye!
(I've got tickets to the Dec 24 Broncos-Raiders game and I'm telling you now, I'm going to scream myself horse. Oh I crack myself up. Two puns in one post!)
