The hardest working man in daytime television was up past his bedtime last night to accept his nomination into the NFL Pro Football Hall of Fame. Peep Michael Strahan’s induction speech inside…
Talk about bitter sweet. “Live with Kelly & Michael” host and “GMA”‘s newest addition Michael Strahan accepted his nomination into the Pro Football Hall of Fame last night. And as exciting that news is, it comes just one day before calling off he and his ex-fiancee “Hollywood Exes” star Nicole Murphy called off their five-year engagement.
The former couple noted distance and grueling work schedules as the reasons behind their split. Michael is one of the hardest working men in television right now. He’s doing “Live” Kelly Ripa on ABC, he just started his “GMA” gig and he’s also a Fox sports analyst during the NFL football season.
But on a happier note, he accepted his nomination into the Pro Football Hall of Fame and received his distinctive gold dinner jacket. The former defensive end (who spent his entire 15-year career playing for the Giants) was the last one to give his speech at the NFL Class of 2014 Pro Football Hall of Fame enshrinement ceremony at Fawcett Stadium in Ohio, and he thanked all those who helped him along the way.
During his speech, the single-season sack record holder thanked all of the Hall of Famers that surrounded him, the New York Giants, coaches, one of the greatest pass rushers in the NFL Lawrence Taylor and reflected on his Super Bowl XLII win in 2008.
Michael noted this weekend as being “the best weekend of my life.”

Congrats to him!
