Isaac Bruce did the right thing. The long-time St. Louis FC receiver (and last playing member of the Los Angeles Rams) will not wear his trademark No. 80 in San Francisco. Instead, he will honor the legacy of Jerry Rice.
Too bad Rice didn’t do the same dog damn thing when he made Steve Largent pull his retired No. 80 from the rafters in his horrific stint in Seattle. Rice likely cried behind the scenes to ensure that Bruce wouldn’t wear his beloved No. 80.
Bruce also said that he will further honor Rice’s legacy by frequenting the Bay Area’s seedy massage parlors for the “rub-and-a-tug” special, also known in the Asian community as “The No. 80.”
