On Saturday night in front of a crowd of thousands, retired New York Giants legend Michael Strahan was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. And during an emotional 34-minute speech, he thanked over 40 of his former teammates and coaches, as well as his family and friends that span the globe. And amidst the thousands of Big Blue fans who made the journey to Canton, Ohio to honor their football hero, were hundreds of celebrities there to do the exact same thing.
From Tom Coughlin to Eli Manning and Kelly Ripa to Robin Robers and LL Cool J to Usher, the worlds of sports and entertainment combined to say thank you to one of the greatest football players who ever lived. But beyond those who made a physical appearance, so many more were out in force to express their thanks and gratitude to both Michael Strahan the football player and Michael Strahan the person.
But rather than running down the list name-by-name, why don't we allow the players, coaches, opponents and celebrity fans to do the talking for themselves, shall we?
