Listen, I love the Olympics as much as the next guy, but there’s still nothing that gets my
heart testosterone pumping quite like real, American football. Since it’s been approximately 4,380 hours since the Super Bowl ended, it’s only right that I’m hyped for tonight’s Hall of Fame game.
The game in Canton, Ohio, which will pit the Indianapolis Colts against the Green Bay Packers, will also feature UK alumni Ricky Lumpkin, Winston Guy, Randall Cobb and Tim Masthay.
Lumpkin, a 300-pound DE, signed a reserve/future contract with the Colts this January after being released by the Raiders. Guy has also inked a base salary deal with the Colts and will look to prove his mettle, after posting just 6 tackles for the Colts last season.
Masthay is working on his 7th year starting at punter for the Cheeseheads, and will hope to impress this year especially, since his contract runs out at season’s end. And remember, Green Bay, he can do this:
Does he really need any words?
C’mon NFL, 100th? Randall “Easy on the eyes” Cobb is at least top 75. Anyways, tune in at 8 ET on ESPN
UPDATE: The Hall of Fame game between the Green Bay Packers and Indianapolis Colts has been canceled due to concerns over field conditions. While it was an otherwise great weekend with the 54th Hall of Fame class being inducted, all of our excitement with the first weekend of football will have to wait a little longer.
