It’s not so balmy in the aux box as it should be in Tampa, but I’m not the most senior writer in my section either. Andy Rooney of “60 Minutes” fame is sitting right in front of me. Rooney turned 90 last month so he’s got 41 years on me.
Somehow, I’m in a section filled with Cardinals fans. Who knew there were any? One of the red-clad rooters is wearing a jersey of former running back Adrian Murrell. Anyone remember that Murrell played with newly-minted Hall of Famer Bruce Smith on the 2000 Redskins? In fact, that team which crashed from 6-2 to 8-8 (sound familiar, Redskins fans?) will someday have four Canton enshrinees from its defense: Smith, 2008 inductee Darrell Green, Deion Sanders and Champ Bailey.
