Sweet Jesus, Finally!

I've been ranting about this for years, but finally the selection committee got their heads out of their ass and voted in Redskin great Art Monk to the Hall of Fame
From the Associated Press:
Monk finally was chosen in his eighth year of eligibility. He concluded his career after the 1995 season with Philadelphia, but spent 13 years with the Redskins as one of the NFL's premier receivers. Monk held records for most consecutive games with a reception (164) and career catches (820). Both have been surpassed, but Monk didn't play in as wide-open an era on offense as many other receivers. He was one of the most consistent possession and third-down receivers in the league throughout his 14 pro seasons.
Congratulations to Art, who was far and away my favorite player when I was a kid.
