Hall of Fame tight end Mike Ditka could probably suit up and play on Sunday, even with a slight limp. At least he looks menacing enough to play. Dressed in all black, Ditka carries a presence with him wherever he goes.
Part of the reason Ditka is here is to raise awareness for retired players who are in crisis through gridirongreats.org.
“I owe my whole life to football,” Ditka told Scott Hanson in an interview. “Football doesn’t owe me a penny.”
Just before Ditka was on set, standing in the exact same spot were two Buccaneers cheerleaders, taking photos on the set with Hanson. It got awfully quiet.
Ryan Howard of the Phillies is hitting up an interview right now with Jamie Dukes of NFL Network.
