Jerry, I appreciate your commitment to family, the Dallas Cowboy family and your own family. Jerry, those were kind words. Michael cried, not ashamed to wipe away his tears. I just love her to death. I say, God, I have my struggles and I made some bad decisions, but whatever you do, whatever you do, don't let me mess this up. But more important than anything, to have the honor to get to be a part of Michael Irvin going into the Hall of Fame, be there, have something to say about him going in there. You see the game flexed its greatest muscle that day: the ability to heal.
He learned his game from his older brothers in Fort Lauderdale. Nobody had heard either from beginning to end. The team finished 3-13 during Irvin's first season and then fell to 1-15 the following year. The movie, Remember the Titans, is my favorite movie, staring Denzel Washington. I have experienced all this game has to offer on the football field, the losing, going 3 13, even 1 15.
He's the winningest quarterback in the decade of the '90s. Kevin Mawae When Mawae was inducted on Saturday, he became the first Hawaiian-born member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and just in case that wasn't clear, he wore a lei on stage for his speech. It unites a whole town, black, white, old, young, rich and poor. Less than an hour before Irvin was to speak, Joseph saw him again backstage. So I will try to put the credit in the right place tonight and share with you my help and my journey.
The day after his vision in the gym, Irvin invited Joseph to visit him in Dallas. He said a couple other words. Irvin won three Super Bowls with the Cowboys. Sandy, my beautiful wife, I have worked tirelessly, baby, to give you the for better. I experienced a football game that contributed to the healing of a city. When it was time to practice, it was complete focus.
So in honor of Jordan, here are the 10 most ridiculous hall of fame induction speeches. He was later released on bond. The battle that Michael was involved in with Deion Sanders on almost every play, boy did he make play after play after play. Father, I'd like to thank you for allowing us all to travel here safely, thank you in advance for the same in allowing us to travel home. He says, You gave them to me. And his numbers increased as that long season went along and we got closer to the playoffs. He came to me no matter what.
This makes them fascinating, inspirational and motivational individuals, and over the years there have been many of them which have delivered incredible speeches which have inspired, moved or entertained sports fans around the world. You always will no matter what. I witnessed those fans as they looked for each other, hugged one another and just be thankful to be in that stadium. Mom, you always had my back, even when I was dead ass wrong. Are you crippled by heartbreak after seeing that your ex blocked you on Instagram? Irvin had become a trusted friend, one of the three or four most devoted clients of the thousands Joseph had tutored. And I made some bad decisions.
You can see Robinson's entire speech below. If you're in my shoes, you feel like he's a son. He was my hero and he loved, I'm telling you, he loved the Dallas Cowboys. And I didn't know how to answer that. He's gotten a lot of top-notch guests and surprised some observers.
Then he raised his eyes to the crowd and decided to take a risk. A lot of players start out their speeches by thanking God and Jesus Christ. Right then I had the feeling, We're going to be world champions. You tell everyone or anyone that has ever doubted, thought they did not measure up or wanted to quit, you tell them to look up, get up and don't ever give up. But I also gave you the for worse, and you didn't deserve it.
In 2007, he was selected to the. You could watch this clip on mute and still be fired up enough to set a one-rep max at the squat rack. The 2019 class also included former vice president of personnel Gil Brandt, former owner Pat Bowlen, offensive lineman Kevin Mawae and one of the best tight ends in history, Tony Gonzalez. Bailey didn't exactly go out his way to compliment the Redskins at all during his speech, which kind of makes sense when you consider this is the same team that didn't even call to congratulate him on his induction the Redskins found out in February that he was being inducted. George Smith dedicated 37 years to that great program. Troy came to that huddle with those big blue eyes and he looked up and he said, Hey, I'm coming to you no matter what. Because of you, my legacy lives on.
From Reed's bust to the powerful message in Bailey's speech to Gonzalez's record-setting closing speech, it was a memorable night. That's my heart right there. His name is Mike Warsick. My football family, as Jerry told you, began at St. It was either a completion and most of the time it was for a first down. So don't tell me it's just a game.
