So we're in the hotel room getting ready for a quick ride up I-77 to the Hall of Fame that matters most to Florio Jr., and we're watching a show on NFL Network about Michael Irvin.
Since I'm working on the site, I'm not actually watching the screen. And when highlights of Irvin's on-field exploits appear, my wife says, "He just ran right by Rod Woodson."
Which reminded me of Irvin's not-so-friendly comments about Woodson from the days prior to the Hall of Fame vote.
"Soft," Irvin said repeatedly during a Radio Row visit with our friends Scott Paulsen, Mike Logan, and Eddy Crow of ESPN Radio 1250 in Pittsburgh
"When I lined up with him I saw intimidation in his eyes," Irvin said. "I just call that soft."
So pay attention tonight to any possible interactions today between Woodson, who's officially entering a place today not known as the "Hall of Soft," and Irvin, who's in Canton as part of the NFL Network crew.
