Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

a kick
A big hat-tip to ESPN’s coverage at today’s Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremonies, for this one little gem:

During Chris Berman’s introduction of inductee Dan Marino, one of the cameras cut to someone in the crowd waving a posterboard that read, “LACES OUT, DAN!”.

Classic.

I’m sure Marino wasn’t fazed by it, since he hears it all the time:

…Marino also has appeared in several feature films including a brief cameo in Bad Boys II and a larger role playing himself in 1994’s “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective” starring Jim Carrey. The plot centered on the Miami Dolphins mascot being stolen. “It was quite a few years ago but it was a fun experience,” Marino said of working with Carrey. “I still walk around and people come up to me and yell, ‘laces out Dan’ and have the lines memorized and everything. It was a really good experience.”

Incidentally, I’m glad that the Marks Brothers were in Canton today.

FURTHER THOUGHTS: Mark it down, circa six or seven years from now:

I guess this means that Brett Favre can look forward to a “WHAT ABOUT BRETT FAV-RAH?” sign when he gets inducted — a nod to his as-bad acting turn in There’s Something About Mary
