All I can say is WOW… Michael Irvin delivered one of the best HOF speeches of the night. I’ll be the first to admit, I cried. Irvin’s speech reflected on a whole spectrum, from on-the field, to off-the field.

Irvin touched us all tonight. Whether you’re a Dallas Cowboys fan, or just a casual fan of football, this was a speech for the decades. I’ll remember this for a long time, and carry it with me:

“Look Up. Get Up. Don’t Ever Give Up”


Three times a charm for Irvin was well worth the wait. Being a fan of the Dallas Cowboys and a fan of Michael Irvin makes me proud. His speech was top notch, moving, and it offered advice to anyone that would listen.

Very moving speech indeed.
