deion HOF speech

Deion Sanders thanked or showed love to 123 people during his Hall of Fame induction speech on Saturday night. The shout outs included some to his high school English teacher, two of the greatest West Coast rappers in history, five bishops and Nate Newton. Through copious note-taking, liberal use of the DVR rewind button and a printed transcript of the speech that was disappointingly discovered far too late in this process, Shutdown Corner compiled a list of all the people Deion thanked during his speech.
