Bruce Won't Wear No. 80 in Frisco

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.”

Of course, Largent's legacy is being run out of Congress for being too conservative for even the Religious Right. That and having his son indicted for soliciting girls under 16.

He was a great receiver, though. I wouldn't vote for him, but he could catch a football.

So what are the Angels up to, anyway?

When I think of Largent, all I can see is Lester Hayes, sitting on his chest, trying to gouge his eyes for cut-blocking him. The Judge belongs in the HOF for that alone. By the way, my verification word is "cclti", so I'll leave that one for the THN developmental squad to play with.

Isaac will be in for a pleasant surprise when he goes in for his first “The No. 80.” I'm sure that the establishments in STL don't allow "free release" in their parlors like they do in NoCal.
