Eddie Murray, 1999 Upper Deck Retro #109

I just can't resist doing a second straight football-themed post.

Throughout his Hall of Fame career, Eddie Murray wore number 33.

Today, the Baltimore Ravens scored exactly 33 points in steamrolling fragile little flower Tom Brady, snarling hobo curmudgeon Bill Belichick and the rest of the recently-dynastic New England Patriots. Next week, it's onward to Indianapolis to take exorcise some more demons against another insanely successful team.

How sweet it is!

Kevin,

When you started the post by mentioning the football theme, I was sure you were going to talk about Eddie's second career as an NFL kicker, winning the '81 Pro Bowl MVP, named to the NFL all-decade team of the '80's and even winning a ring in SB XXVIII. Mild mannered Eddie was getting it done in two sports well before Bo (and later Deion) made such a big deal about it!

Oh, yeah - GOOOOO RAVENS!!!!!

Nobody was a cool as Eddie Murray. And nothing brightens a bad day at work like one of his cards that I've never seen before.

deal - Ravens/Colts. This week is going to be wild.

Tim - Wow, I'd forgotten about the "other" Eddie Murray. As if there weren't already enough people confused by Eddie Murray v. Eddie Murphy!

Bob - Glad to help, and there's more where that came from. :)
