“Oh, heck no.”
Oh, heck yes.
Heck no was Jason Taylor’s stunned reaction when he heard a knock on his hotel room door.
He knew what that meant, because if he had not been voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, someone would have phoned him to tell him that.
So there Taylor sat on the edge of the bed, fiddling with a phone he hoped wouldn’t ring, when a Hall of Fame rep came a-knocking.
“Are you serious? Are you serious?” Taylor said as the Hall made it official — he not only is among the Class of 2017, but he’s going in as a first-ballot Hall of Famer.
On Monday, in fact, they will begin measuring for his bust.
Now watch the video of Taylor getting the news of a lifetime.
