In Honor Of A Fallen Hero, Please Observe A Moment Of Silence
Emmitt Smith is no longer at ESPN.
The sure-to-be Hall of Fame running back for the Arizona Cardinals Dallas Cowboys was quietly let go by the sports broadcasting giant, when his contract was not renewed for the upcoming year. Smith, who graced us with so many great broadcasting moments (see: every week of Monday Night Football), will now have to find something else to do with his retirement time than match wits with Steve Young.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the NFL all-time rushing leader, as he readjusts himself to the normal world. As his coach, Jimmy Johnson once said: “There, but for the grace of God, goes Emmitt Smith.*”
