This week retired Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman Larry Allen will most likely deliver the worst, and shortest, speech ever in the history of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He was a man of few words, but he was not some giant dummy.
No one lasts 14 years in the NFL and accomplishes as much as Allen by being dumb. He just didn't speak much to the cameras.
On Saturday, he will be enshrined where he belongs next to the greats to ever play the game of football on the football field in a football game in the National Football League.
An offensive lineman doesn't amass many highlights in a career, but Allen has two - his famous bench press of 700 pounds, and this classic of a Monday night game in 1994 during his rookie year. This play demonstrates just how athletic, and freakishly fast, Allen was.
