The first half was very good. Lots of props to his bro. " I'm the second best in my family". He needs to be a preacher.

I'm not a Shannon Sharpe fan, but that speech was really damn good.

It was awesome when he asked the HoF voters to consider Sterling and when he mentioned he wasn't even the best player in his family.

People are overrating Shannon's out of surprise that they could understand it. Emmitt Smith's was way better to me (though, come to think of it, that speech is also benefiting from the same surprise factor).

How is it overrated? It's an opinion. It either connects with the listener or it doesn't.
It seems it's connecting with a lot of people.

Oh, it was plenty good. But the internet is in a flurry to crown it best HoF induction speech ever. I find it to have been too reliant on repetition, forced profundity, and cliche to be the best ever.

I never said best ever, I hadn't even read the nets, just commented that I was touched. I expected showmanship and boastfulness. Instead it was humbling and gratitude.

Yes. Do you even read this board? In the past two days, I've trolled D.C. threads, made a cross-thread humor thread, and propositioned SAUTO for sexual favors. I would say that prevents me from being the most-self-serious.

Its all in how you do it.

No offense, I love your posting for the most part even though we have disagreed a few times.

But you calling someone solipsistic is the one of the best forms of irony ever.

Your whole existence is being a self absorbed snob. And you are good at it.

Am I smug? Yeah, I'm smug. I don't wear a white hat. I'm kind of a jerk.

I wouldn't be here though if I did think that everything revolves around me. I've always been, and especially am now that I don't post as much as I used to, a supporting player here.

Look you are more of a key player here than I am, and many others. I understand that.

FWIW, I enjoyed his speach. It was interesting to see and hear about the bond between him, his brother, sister, and grandmother. The drive that was instilled into them to be great no matter what... a no matter what that included the neglection of Shannons own children... in order to get where he now is in life.

The part about being told by one of the assistant coaches that he was going to be cut after the last preseason game against the Cardinals was very good. As was the part about his first regular season game with Elway, and how Elway helped him through that game.

A very good speach. Much more humble than I anticipated.

I thought it was good. Who could decide "Best HOF speech ever"? That's just a matter of preference. Good story, all that. Honestly, I couldn't make heads or tails from Dent's speech. It seemed to be just long, rambling and random. Tough to follow. It could have been that my kids were wrestling around in the living room too. I just couldn't stay with him.
