Happy Retirement

Jerry Rice retired yesterday, ending his Hall of Fame career after 21 seasons. Rice was one my favorite players when I was younger, partly because of his talent, but also because of his demeanor. His "gunfighter"-esque determination reminded me of Larry Bird. You knew he was getting the ball, and he knew he was going to hit (if they caught him). Rice combined toughness with the speed and grace his position demands. He is not only the greatest receiver in NFL history, he is also one of the greatest athletes in American sports history.
