All of these years, despite waiting on seeing my all-time favorite player inducted in the HOF, I have never watched any of the announcement on TV but for some odd reason, I had the TV on while I lounged in my bedroom. And naturally, I had the channel defaulting to NFL Network. So there it was, they were about to announce the Class of the 2009 HOF - How sweet it was to finally hear it - and the fact DT's name came right after they said Bruce Smith. I had a tear for that moment..
He was the sole reason I followed the NFL and became a Kansas City Chiefs fan while attending college at Central Missouri State, just 55 miles east of Arrowhead stadium.
