St. Louis Rams’ wide receiver Isaac Bruce will have his number retired by the team Sunday at the Rams’ week 8 game against the Carolina Panthers. If you recall the Rams’ inked Bruce over the summer, who leads the franchise in receiving yards, TDs and catches, so he could retire a Ram. A classy move by the franchise, and I would suggest getting to the Dome earlier than usually so you don’t miss the honoring of the man who’s name is synonymous with “The Greatest Show of Turf”, say it with me: Isaac Bruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuce!
Rams’ running back Steven Jackson was a guest on The T.Ocho Show incase you missed it. Jackson and the guys discussed various topics around the NFL, including Jackson’s thought of the NFL lockout: “The lockout is definitely possible. I tell young player to save their money”
Finally, Steven Jackson, who recently passed Eric Dickerson as the all-time leading rusher in franchise history, made his case for inclusion among St. Louis’s sports icons:
“I get better tables in St. Louis than Pujols and Nelly. The Cardinals didn’t make the playoffs and Nelly’s in the studio right now so I win by default.”
