I don't know if there's a garment in the world that's seen as many emotions as Michael Irvin's Hall of Fame jacket.
Of course, he wore the yellow blazer as he gave his touching Hall of Fame induction speech. In that speech, Irvin prayed, cried, lamented, confessed, praised, inspired and was overjoyed.
Irvin, from the Chicago Tribune:
"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's no word on the quality of performance he turned in.
Don't you ever change, Michael Irvin. Don't ever change.
Gracias, With Leather.
