Saturday night Colleen and I watched six fine men be inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame. Two were from our beloved Washington Redskins- Darrell Green and Art Monk. There were a lot of DC fans there in Canton - The 'Skins play in the HOF Game Sunday night. Art Monk got a 4 minute long standing ovation by the fans (see ESPN picture).
Both of those guys are outspoken Christians who are tremendous examples for us all as men, husbands, fathers (both introduced by their sons) and community leaders. Both were true team players who played the game with fervor, excellence and integrity. Both honored the Lord in their speeches, and Art Monk really preached the Gospel!
Hail to the Redskins, and congratulations to these two men who received greatly deserved honor.
Update: 8/6/08 - C.J. Mahaney comments on Art Monk's speech.
