Emmitt Smith expected to announce retirement Thursday

As a Packer fan who saw several hopes fade in the early-mid 90's at Texas Stadium, I have immense respect for Emmitt Smith. In fact, you could make a case that he is the most successful pro football player of all time.

That said, when it is announced that something is going to be announced, and the substance of that announcement is revealed in the announcement of the announcement, isn't the announcement of the announcement the real announcement, so that the "official" announcement is just gravy?

The reason I bring this up, is that I wanted to write that sentence. I used "announced" twice and "announcement" seven, SEVEN, times in one sentence. I don't think I've ever done anything like that before. And I doubt Emmitt Smith has, either.

Is Emmitt Smith the greatest running back of all time? Certainly not. But is this the greatest blog posting of all time? Without a doubt

  2. Sometimes it is staggering just contemplating the magnitude of my own greatness. I suppose the weak and shallow-minded would call that being "full of myself."
