Michael Irvin claims he 'made love' in HOF jacket

Posted by Will Brinson

You ever see that picture of Phil Mickelson driving through Krispy Kreme with his Masters jacket on ? If not, you should check it out, because, like most quirky things that athletes do with championship trophies and apparel, it's pretty humorous.

However, if someone offers to show you a video of Michael Irvin flaunting his NFL Hall of Fame jacket, DO NOT CLICK PLAY. Why? Well, here's why:

"I remember when I was inducted into the Hall of Fame and they gave me my Hall of Fame yellow blazer," Irvin told the Chicago Tribune . "I wore it for two straight days. Finally my wife was in bed and said she wanted to make love but that I had to take the coat off. I refused and kept the blazer on because I wanted to perform like a Hall of Famer on the field and off."

So, um, that's ridiculously disgusting. Not the act of love-making or even the wearing weird clothes while love-making thing ... just that, well, let's say hypothetically you end up in a situation on Hall of Fame weekend where you might have to be hugging Michael Irvin, well, how much do you trust his dry cleaner?

And believe me, these hugs happen. Don't they, Hines Ward, Rich Eisen and Michael Irvin's MOTHER?!? (Notice he's cheesing out with a grin on every picture but the last one, no?)

Hey Kurt Warner, show us your moves

I hate to tread on Andy’s celebrity-gossip role here on the Facts & Rumors blog, but the Washington Post is reporting that Kurt Warner will be included on the next season of “Dancing with the Stars.”

He joins Emmitt Smith, Jerry Rice, Jason Taylor, Warren Sapp, Lawrence Taylor, Michael Irvin and Chad Ochocinco as the only NFL alumni – or current players – to compete on the show. Of all those contestants, only Smith has won.

Though he’s the first quarterback ever to participate, I doubt Warner will be the next NFL star to win the title. But that’s OK. It might not compare to the Dancing with the Stars trophy, but Warner does have a Super Bowl ring.

Jimmy Johnson joining 'Survivor: Nicaragua' cast?

Jimmy Johnson, former Cowboys coach and current Fox broadcaster, will inexplicably (and, reportedly) spiff up his already impressive acting resume on "Survivor: Nicaragua," the latest rendition of CBS' popular television show.

My man Calvin Watkins has a source claiming that Johnson is prepared to go where no really wealthy, multiple-championship-winning, still-gainfully-employed broadcaster has gone before: reality television.

Now, sure, there have been lots of folk who have appeared on stuff like "Dancing With the Stars," like Emmitt Smith, Michael Irvin, Chad Ochocinco, and Lawrence Taylor. But that's more of a "hey, look how my talents on the football field translate over into stuff that kind of seems like real life!" attention grab.

Or something. This, though, is different. It's "Survivor," where the whole purpose (at least I've always thought) is to throw a ton of strangers onto an island and see how long they can last while playing a low-stakes game of international intrigue vis-a-vis learning each other's weaknesses and then exploiting them for personal gain.

Johnson on board kind of defeats the purpose, since someone just needs to sneak in his tent and hijack whatever product JJ brings to put in his hair. He won't last more than two episodes.
