I had the chance to get to know Emmit during the fall of 2006 while I was managing a Dave & Buster's in Dallas. He and his brother Emory would come in to play a horse racing game called "Derby Owners Club" on a daily basis. It was always a hassle for him because people would not leave him alone but he came anyway. I asked him once why he didn't just buy the game for his house and he said that he just enjoyed getting out in public. The day before Thanksgiving they were there from 11:00 AM until just before midnight. He said that there were about 50 people staying at his house and he didn't want to go near the place! I will never forget the way that he carried himself in public and how nice he was to the people who would relentlessly try to talk to him and how he always refused to let us try to keep them at a distance. He would buy peoples dinner sometimes and really show folks a good time. I never once saw him turn someone away for an autograph or a picture even if he was in the middle of a game.
I hate it that his personality didn't translate well to TV because he is really an intelligent, nice person who I never once saw act like the greatest statistical running back to ever play football. I hope that he takes some time to relax and enjoy life because he has certainly earned it.

One down and one more to go please. Steve Young may know more vocabulary words, buy he is still a idiot.

But, alas, we won't have Emmitt to kick around anymore. Still, we have our memories.

Some samples of classic "Emmitt-ese":

Quote:
He gets the ball over to their third read than most quarterback can." (Commentary: I think Emmitt forgot a word here, but at least he didn't say "He get the ball over...")
Quote:
I love those style of play that the Tennessee Titans bring to the game." (Commentary: What a coincidence! I love those grammatical error that Emmitt bring to the Sunday NFL Countdown!)
Quote:
"Giants has too many guys in the secondary banged up." (Commentary: Ahhh, the tricky has-have dilemma. When do you use "has?" When do you use "have?" This has puzzled writers for years.)
Quote:
I'm concerned about a guy who fall down before get hits." (Commentary: And I'm concerned about a guy who speak before he conjugate his verb and puts the "s" in the wrong place, but you don't see me making a big fuss over it.)
Quote:
Tom Brady is buyin' time for his lineman." (Commentary: And here I thought that offensive linemen were "buyin' time" for the quarterback.)
Quote:
Alex has a lot of growing up to do, and it's hard to grow up when you are learning three different offenses every year." (Commentary: Three different offenses every year, huh? That's a lot of turnover in the Bay Area. What are they doing down there?)
Quote:
Reggie Bush is definitely effective. Just not tonight." (Commentary: Emmitt said this after the Falcons-Saints Monday night game. Note to Emmitt: Bush wasn't effective... because... HE DIDN'T EVEN PLAY! No wonder he wasn't effective tonight.)
That is just a sample, go here for more.

Look, I respected (and hated) Emmitt as a player. However, as insensitive as this may sound, to be in front of the camera you need some communication skills. And no, this is not a racial thing. There are plenty of African American sports announcers that are excellent analysts and communicators. Emmitt just doesn't possess that skill
