Back in the day an NFL career would have been appeali8ng, but now the Olympic "amateur" athletes are allowed to receive millions. To get that much for just running without being whacked by ferocious defensive backs is alkmost a no-brainer. Although he is 6"5" with muscles, if he could learn to catch he could scare defensive backs on every team!

Al (R.I.P.) is busy voting dem, along with his dog and dead mother.

Seriously, if Al were still with us, he would LOVE to give Mr. Bolt a tryout if he were still with us I'm sure, just for the publicity alone.

Bullet Bob Hayes was about the best...although I think it's funny when people say that 9.91 (his record) wasn't enough to win today...

I wouldn't blame him one bit if he stayed an "amateur" track star - endorsements do make a pretty penny these days as long as you stay clean. I remember all the former track stars that had their go in the NFL, it was rare that one could get used to running in pads AND catch a football... in stride... with a dude intent on taking your head off close by... ouch.

I'm a Charger fan so I can dream about Mr. Bolt playing for the "Bolts"

I warned you all that I love the Olympics (maybe a little too much), but this is a story worth sharing. While American Sanya Richards-Ross was accepting the gold medal for winning the 400-meter dash, Usain Bolt, the amazingly fast Jamaican man who won the 100-meter dash, was giving an interview. And instead of continuing to talk over the Star-Spangled Banner, he turned around, pointed at the flag, and indicated to the reporter that he would like to watch in silence. Watch:
