I heard on the radio this morning that Phil Simms has recently said that, in his opinion, current and former NFL players are all rooting for Peyton Manning to get a ring this Sunday – because they respect the way he carries himself and goes about his work, etc.
Yeah, you know where this is going….
If the Yankees make the World Series this season, do you think Orel Hershiser or some other former star turned broadcaster will come out and say that he thinks current and former baseball players are all rooting for Alex Rodriguez to get a ring?
I don’t think that will happen.
It would be nice if I can tell you that this won’t happen because there is a difference in the way Manning and Rodriguez conduct themselves, etc. But, I don’t know enough about Manning to confirm that opinion.
It’s just a gut feeling – as to why I think it won’t happen. Maybe I’m wrong? What do you think? Should A-Rod get that support from his peers? Will he? Use the comments section here to share your thoughts.
