Former Notre Dame Fighting Irish linebacker, Rocky Boiman, has always had a special place in my heart. He’s a fellow Ohioan, and EA Sports had him as the highest rated CORNERBACK for Notre Dame one year. For many years, I watched a ton of games with my brother-in-law, and he was also a huge fan — whether or not it’s because he shares that Ginger gene remains unclear. We kept track of how many times Pat Hayden would mention Rocky’s Metallica passion, and I think it averaged about 3 times a game (recorded stats were lost in a move).
Rocky has been working the sidelines for ESPN after his NFL career, and has been doing a pretty good job. His recent “wrestling promo” the other night, however... well that was just too good. I meant to post this the other day, but better late than never.
