  1. I rarely ever watch Hall Of Fame induction speeches or any of the ceremonies, but I did actually see part of Kurt Warner’s speech yesterday. I think the guys embellish their stories of how they got to and played so well in their acceptance speeches, and they thank everyone under the sun for helping them get there. It’s like watching an Oscar winning actor or actress give their speeches, except 10 times as long.
    Take Kurt Warner, for instance. He actually wants us to believe that the first thing which drove him to renew his efforts try one more time to make it in the NFL was a box of Wheaties on a shelf in the grocery store where he worked at 3:00 a.m. He said that the box had Dan Marino’s picture on it and that the picture grabbed his attention, and every time he walked by it was like Marino was looking at him. I mean, c’mon! It’s a nice story, but if anyone actually believes it I have a couple of bridges to sell you.
    Warner’s path to the NFL was remarkable and he does get high marks for his perseverance, but Dan Marino on a Wheaties Box?? Even Dan Marino looked embarrassed when they put the camera on him while Warner was saying that.
    Kurt is a great guy and his story is amazing, but the Wheaties box story was over the top, for me.
