A lot of people didn’t like Michael Irvin. During his time in the NFL he was brash and arrogant and frequently found himself getting in trouble off the field. But during Irvin’s Hall of Fame induction, even those who didn’t like him respected his heartfelt speech. Irvin did not hold back the tears as he talked about his life on the field and his mistakes off of it. Irvin's speech is too long to include in its entirety (full transcript here), but the last minute of his speech, tears already streaming down his face, sum up what it was all about.
