With the Hall of Fame Enshrinement coming up on Saturday, a humorous story about Michael Irvin’s enshrinement in Canton has been making the rounds. As Hot Clicks points out from With Leather, Irvin told the Chicago Tribune that he embraced his Hall of Fame jacket so much that he didn’t take it off for two straight days regardless of what he was doing. And you can guess what he was doing …
“I remember when I was inducted into the Hall of Fame and they gave me my Hall of Fame yellow blazer. I wore it for two straight days. Finally my wife was in bed and said she wanted to make love but that I had to take the coat off. I refused and kept the blazer on because I wanted to perform like a Hall of Famer on the field and off.”
There are plenty of other Michael Irvin jokes to throw in there about what else he did with that blazer on but this was unexpected. And why am I thinking that his wife got her way with this one? Let’s just hope he got it dry cleaned afterward.
