On a weekend where GMA host Michael Strahan had his jersey retired by the New York Giants, he had pictures to show off the fun.
Strahan, a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, played all 15 of his National Football League seasons with the Giants. The defensive end was part of the Super Bowl XLII-winning team.
Well, let’s take a look at what Strahan shared on his Instagram account.
NFL fans know that Strahan is a part of the FOX NFL Sunday pregame and halftime shows.
Last weekend, Curt Menafee, Terry Bradshaw, Howie Long, and Jimmy Johnson took the show to New York City. They wanted to be there for Strahan’s big day.
Speaking of GMA, or Good Morning America, Strahan, a native of Houston, Texas, has been on there on a full-time basis since 2016.
Still, getting a jersey retired in front of a Giants home crowd meant a lot to him. His number will never be worn again by any Giants player. And that number would be 92.
Michael Strahan Reflected on His NFL Career Ahead of Giants Ceremony
Ahead of the ceremony on Sunday, Michael Strahan took a little time to reflect upon his NFL career.
He shared those insights on Instagram.
“This Sunday, I have the extreme honor to head to MetLife Stadium to have number 92 officially retired by the New York Giants,” Michael Strahan writes. “15 years of representing the team on and off the field and closing out my career with a Super Bowl win went by in a flash! This didn’t happen without a lot of help. I had many great teammates, coaches, and supporters who made me a better football player and man.”
While Strahan talked about those people, he didn’t name them one at a time.
“Too many to name individually, but I want to thank them all!” Strahan writes. “To be recognized on Sunday will absolutely be a moment I will forever be grateful for. See you all on Sunday. Pretty amazing to see this billboard (swipe left) in Times Square from the Giants.”
