How Will the NFL Survive the Recession Now?

DSC_0331

New England Patriots strong safety, Rodney Harrison, retired abruptly this morning and announced that he will join the NBC broadcast team for their Sunday Night NFL broadcasts. I’m hoping as a sideline reporter (oh please, oh please, oh please).

Harrison had a long and storied career in the NFL, accumulating two Pro Bowls (that’s it?) and two Super Bowl rings in his 15 year career. Harrison will best be remembered for being one of the most fearsome, vicious players in the recent history of football, that was backed up by a NFL record $200,000+ in on-the-field fines for illegal hits. The highlight (or lowlight) came when he was fined $111,000 for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Dancing with the Stars’ Jerry Rice in 2002.

Harrison was only able to play in 31 games the past four seasons, due to various injuries and suspensions, including a four game stint for being associated with Human Growth Hormone in 2007. You can apparently get HGH in “Wild Berry” or “Passionfruit” flavors, though I’m partial to “Tropical Breeze”.

    First off, only 2 pro bowls is definitely surprising. Second, I remember watching that Chargers – Raiders game when he DESTROYED Rice. That was such an amazing hit.

    Yes, I have now decided simply to copy all of Root’s amazing comments since they are so amazing. SOOOOOO amazing.
