"WE are in the Pro Football Hall of Fame", Moss exclaimed.

Brian Urlacher has become a record-28th Chicago Bear inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

"I want to say congratulations to you guys, " Owens said. I've joined a new team and my goal is clear: "To lift up my brothers and sisters, to inspire the leaders of this next generation to fight for love". "I will leave a legacy that will leave an imprint on this world forever".

During his speech, Owens didn't waste any time talking about the snub. It's about the mere fact that the sportswriters are not in alignment with the mission core values of the Hall of Fame. Instead, he took a final shot that the writers, stating that their interests did not line up with that of the Hall of Fame.

It boasts one of our last great daily newspapers, the Canton Repository, the William McKinley Presidential Library, National First Ladies Library and of course is a bastion of antique and classic cars.

Moss, who played primarily for the Minnesota Vikings and was a six-time Pro Bowler and four-time All-Pro, centered his speech on faith and family, and on his pride from being raised in Rand, W.Va. He seized the moment by letting go, humanizing a hulk of a man who's much less guarded as a 40-year-old National Football League retiree than he was as a Bears linebacker. The university named a street after the Hall of Fame receiver. Instead, the diva wide receiver had his gold jacket mailed to him and performed his acceptance speech almost 600 miles south of Canton, Ohio at his former college, The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. My Pop Warner team, Forest View, they have a Hall of Famer. Such appears to be the case with Kobe Bryant and Terrell Owens. "Dawk said yesterday that he's going to take some of T.O.'s allotted time". He also wore a "C" for Chattanooga pin on each lapel.

Pep Guardiola praised his players for their performance - describing Bernado Silva's display, in particular, as "a masterpiece". Willian is thought to have attracted interest from Manchester United, Real Madrid and Barcelona. "I'm so happy he came here".

Owens teared up multiple times during his speech and got extremely emotional while talking about his mom, Marilyn Owens Heard, and his late grandma.

According to his dad who presented him for induction, Brazile's idol was Dick Butkus, and Brazile was careful to mention early on in his acceptance speech his college teammate and fellow first-round pick in 1975 was Walter Payton.

"This is for you", Owens said.

Near the end of his speech, Owens got the crowd involved.

"We have more commonalities than differences". Hey listen, I have a good understanding that you don't have money just to waste, so that means you put hard earned money that you could be saving to come out here and celebrate with your boy.
