Happy 56th Birthday To Art Monk

Posted by Stephen Czarda on December 5, 2013 – 11:06 am

Art Monk, Donnell Woolford

On this fifth day of the 12th month of 2013 Washington Redskins great Art Monk turns 56.

Happy birthday!

The franchise’s all-time leader in receptions (888) and receiving yards (12,026–3,000 more than No. 2 Charley Taylor), Monk finally got into the Hall of Fame in 2008 alongside cornerback Darrell Green.

His protracted wait into the Pro Football Hall of Fame was well documented—because it’s still crazy to think he wasn’t considered a first ballot guy by those who get a vote.

In honor of his special day, I found some YouTube videos of his playing days, Hall of Fame speech and the amazing four minute standing ovation he received prior to ringing off a list of thanks to those who helped him during his journey from Syracuse stud to one of the best football players to ever walk the face of the earth.

If the 240 second endorsement from the burgundy and gold crowd doesn’t make you shed a tear that I honestly don’t know what can.

First the highlights:

And the emotional outpouring from Redskins Nation and football fans alike that finally–yes it was actually happening–Art Monk was center stage with a gold jacket on and microphone in hand ready to accept his placement into the Hall of Fame.

Hands down one of the greatest moments in all of sports–not just football–history:

Enjoy the highlights of his enshrinement with blurred vision and a box of tissues by your side:
