We hope Dick Vermeil is someday elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, because you know he's just gonna go cry crazy. That place will look like New Orleans when he's done with the waterworks. Until that happens, though, we'll just have to make do with Mark Messier's Hall of Fame induction on Monday.
Because other than Vermeil, nobody cries more than Mark Messier.
Folks, this is likely to be the last chance we will have to see Mark Messier speak, and likely cry, at a meaningful event. Since his playing days have long been over, we haven't really had the chance to see him let the waterworks go in quite a while. It's really been too long. Personally, I would recommend making the trip to Toronto solely to see that. I know it's going to be hard for Mess to top his most famous performance, but let's not forget that this is the Hall of Fame we're talking about. You're supposed to break down like a little girl for this shindig. And we all know there is no one better at milking it than Mess.
Sorry, but anytime we discuss an athlete crying, we have to bring up Adam Morrison. Contractual obligation.
