he's always been one of my favorite players because of his style, of course because he went to PITT and because ive always known his back story and the hardships he face growing up. but to hear him speak so eloquently about it all in one setting left me in awe.

It appears Ed. B. of the P-G is not a fan

What did you think of Curtis Martin's HOF speech?

Ed Bouchette: I didn't listen. Martin did not even have the decency to talk to one of our writers on the phone -- his hometown -- for a story about him going into the hall of fame.

I am a fan of Ed. B. but this sounds petty.

Would Bouchette have listened to the speech if Martin had spoken with the P-G?:noidea:

That is petty. I wonder if that writer was him.

What the hell, Ed. He continually makes it harder for me to respect him each time I read something childish like this. Who pissed in his cheerios? C'mon, man!

im only guessing, but i'd say martin didnt grant any NYC or NE papers pre-HOF speech interviews as well. he strikes me as a fellow who would want to save everything for "the moment".

:hunch: i could be wrong though.
