Dennis Rodman will WING his Hall Fame of Speech when he inducted into the Hall of Fame. I expect him to be just as entertaining as Deion Sanders last week because that's always been his style.

Anyone watching?

It was great to watch Jordan play and I loved him but have to admit that I couldn't take my eyes off of Rodman. Loved, Loved, Loved watching him play for Chicago. It was great.
I wish nbr 91 was flying over the United Center.

I am a little late on this - but I witnessed the absolute WORST HOF speech ever - by Tex Winter's son.

Tex Winter could not speak due to complications from a stroke.

His son praised many people, but not his dad. And he kept going and going and going. OMG...

My wife thought he was drunk.

He did have them on his brightly lit sports coat though. He also apologized to Thomas and Dumars in proclaiming Jordan & Pippen the best teammates he ever had.

I thought his speech was very real once you got past the facial jewelry. (We need a smiley with eyes rolling). If you ever want to realize the role of a man in a boy's life - watch that speech. Definitely the best of the night.

Theresa Edwards also was pretty good.

On the whole, the football speeches were better.
