After Steve McMichael was finished with his college, Chicago Bears and NFL careers, he spent four years as a professional wrestler. On the day of his enshrinement into the college football hall of fame, I had the opportunity to interview him.

I want to preface my next statement by saying that I am not a Tom Brady fan. I have never been a Tom Brady fan. I will never be a Tom Brady fan. Period.
