Russ Grimm Enshrined In Pro Football Hall Of Fame

Russ Grimm On Joe Bugel And Vice Versa

Posted by Matt Terl on August 7, 2010 – 1:56 pm

When Russ Grimm is enshrined in the Hall of Fame tonight, he will be presented by Joe Bugel, his first and longtime offensive line coach. The two blue-collar guys from Pittsburgh pretty much gave the original Hogs their identity in the early eighties, and they began a friendship that continues to this day.

I was able to sit down with Bugel and Grimm today for an interview for the Redskins Broadcast Network, and nothing made their relationship clearer than the two answer that came when I asked Grimm if he had had any doubt who would be his presenter, then asked Bugel if he had had any doubt what he would say.

(I shot this video on my Flip camera; the finished piece will, of course, look and sound much smoother and more professional whenever it airs.)

Russ Grimm On Dallas Fans In Canton

Posted by Matt Terl on August 7, 2010 – 9:38 am

It’s one of the enduring debates in Canton this weekend: what should Redskins fans do when Emmitt Smith is enshrined in the Hall of Fame later today.

The first fans I asked said they would boo, lustily. “When Michael Irvin was announced” (as a returning Hall of Famer when Art Monk and Darrell Green were enshrined in 2008, “we booed him, and he said afterward that he wouldn’t have expected anything less.” The second group of fans took the exact opposite approach. “You don’t boo a Hall of Famer,” one said. “He earned his spot here, you give him the respect he deserves.” And there are the guys from Hogs Haven, who are calling for a walkout when Smith is enshrined today. I guess we know where they stand.

But what about Grimm himself? He discussed his feelings about the Cowboys (and their fans) yesterday, and managed to do an excellent job bridging the divide. Read more »

Russ Grimm Receives His Hall Of Fame Watch

Posted by Matt Terl on August 7, 2010 – 7:20 am

Talking at Redskins Park yesterday, Redskins owner Daniel Snyder told reporters that he had sent soon-to-be-Hall-of-Famer Russ Grimm a “nice and shiny watch,” adding, “A Hall of Fame watch I give out to all the Hall of Famers.”

Well, Grimm received that watch last night at a hospitality event (i.e., afterparty) following last night’s Enshrinee Dinner. Grimm was tucked away at a corner table in the hotel ballroom, looking relaxed and enjoying the company of his family and friends, including Darrell Green and Joe Bugel. Asked if he had any specific response to the gift, Grimm offered a big smile and said, simply, “Thanks!”

The watch being unwrapped:

And a happy Grimm with the watch: Read more »
