You know I can’t stand the Cowboys, or Dallas sports. You also know I’m no big fan of Michael Irvin.
However, the greatest sports-related show in the history of television was Michael Irvin’s “Fourth and Long”.
This is cruelty to humans…unless you realize every single drill Irvin puts these players through, he’s likely had to do at some point. For me, it was a stark awakening to what it means to be an elite athlete. Considering Irvin’s winner…Jesse Holley, made it to the NFL and barely got off the bench, that makes us think about what the guys who play and star on Sundays really put themselves through. There was plenty of controversy, though. I still don’t know why Irvin cut McCann, other than the guy was white and didn’t fit Irvin’s notion of a wide receiver.
I’d love to see Irvin put on his show during this summer. It would pique the interest of NFL fans while this labor nonsense is straightened out.
