This name better be in the Hall of Fame

 23 Days till MBU. 

Shannon Sharpe.

Today’s his big day (hopefully). The guy has arms the size of my legs and and an ego of similar size.

Here’s why I think he should be in the Hall of Fame.

Sharpe was selected All-Pro four times. He’s played in eight Pro Bowls 1992-1998, and has surpassed 1000 yards in three different seasons.

In his 14 year career, Sharpe had 815 receptions for 10,060 yards along with 62 touchdowns in 204 games.

He’s also the proud owner of three Super Bowl rings.

And on top of all that, he’s a stand up guy and a snazzy dresser. 

 

 

 

Sharpe SI.jpgHere is one of my favorite quotes from Shannon Sharpe, and this dude has some good ones:

“I won’t talk about someone’s mother. I won’t talk about their girlfriend or their wife, but if you have a deformity, I would talk about that.”When asked about who he would invite to a dinner party Sharpe responded  with “Bill Gates,  Warren Buffet, Michael Jordan
and Halle Berry. I’d talk to Gates, Buffett and Jordan first, and then me and Halle would go get another table in the back that’s candlelit, and I’d let them discuss whatever they want to discuss.”

I loved Sharpe’s attitude.

The guy was always talking smack but like a Dion Sanders he could back it up.

Good Luck Sharpie..You’ve got my vote…D

Sharpe should be a complete lock to get in. He is arguably the greatest tight end to ever play the game. The only tight end that could be better is Tony Gonzalez seeing as he broke some of Sharpe’s records. I did hear something about the committee putting Sharpe in as a wide receiver instead of a tight end. Doesn’t make much sense but whatever.

D- I’m in complete agreement… especially about the size of Sharpe’s ego. But he truly deserves to be in the HOF.
I also noticed that you said he’s a snazzy dresser, which reminds me, have you seen the way Melo’s been dressing?

D — Without a doubt, Sharpe will be in the football HOF! And I was wondering, does he get his styling tips from you?

HB-I agree about Gonzalez, but Sharpe has three Superbowl rings and that should do it..I think. Originally he was a wide receiver until Reeves convinced him to switch to Tight End.
EMILY-I’ve seen Melo’s suits and honestly his suitmaker must be the same dude who holds on to Melo’s stash of weed. He’s the freggin joke of Denver…Although I did like the grey one.
JULIA-I own one suit. I’m a licensed internet Minister and I only wear it when I marry friends…I’m serious. I’ve done two weddings so far. No, I didn’t wear the Ranter hat while performing the ceremony, but I like that idea…D
