LaDainian Tomlinson officially retired on Monday after signing a one day contract with the team he carried for years: The San Diego Chargers. The future hall of famer ends his career holding 20+ NFL records, and he shares another 10+ with other players. With the severe rise of the passing game and running back by committee in today’s NFL, he might be the last record breaking generational RB we see for a long time. Sadly, he never earned a ring.
Anyway, always the class act, he held the typical “THANKS TO EVERYBODY IN MY LIFE EVER” Retiree press conference. That’s boring. I wanted to see him do his famous TD “Stand on my tiptoes and flick the ball” Celebration.
For those who are confused, let me explain the joke:
Comon LdT. You wore an absurd Bow Tie. At least give us a show once more. And no, I will not call you LT, because there is only one Lawrence Taylor, and he would eat you.
