This is pretty special for people here in Nashville.
While, I never met the guy, Frank's such a positive influence in the community here. I heard a story that he was at a Nashville Predators hockey game after the Music City Miracle and people kept coming up to him and he signed autographs for over two hours. He's known to never turn down an autograph request.
I sincerely hope he gets some Hall Of Fame consideration in 5 years.
Compared to other tight ends Frank has Hall of Fame numbers, but I don't think he will make it. He caught more than four touchdowns in a season only once, and got over 700 yards only twice. He was a very good player for some time, but I don't think he has much national recognition at all. At least not as a great player, and that is what the Hall of Fame is for.
Well, Fox News did threaten to sue the Simpsons not too long ago. (media.guardian.co.uk) I don't have a direct link, but in the book ESPN: The Uncensored Story, there were many in the company behind the scenes that did not like the show.
