The world according to Barkley, Thursday on the radio. The Chuckwagon never disappoints. Ray Lewis called in too. I’m always amazed at his energy. He treated the radio interview like he was getting introduced for a game. Ray talked about how tough it was to deal with the rules the NFL has to protect quarterbacks. He even jumped in on the Michael Vick topic and the court of public opinion.
As this is my last week, I talked to Dan Marino and John Elway about cleaning out their lockers. Elway never went back, someone went back and packed up his stuff. Marino said packing the locker wasn’t as tough as it was to watch his first post-career Dolphin game, that was tough. Elway commented on what Ray Lewis said about QB’s being babied…he said he’d like to let Ray stand in the pocket when 250-pound linebackers are flying at him….he said Ray might see it differently then.
Friday will be another full boat…Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, Bob Costas, Ken Griffey Jr., Bob Knight….and….wait for it…Ron Burgundy.
