Unlike political elections, being voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame is an eternal selection.
That fact was not lost on John Randle, the former defensive tackle for the Seahawks and Minnesota Vikings who was chosen to the Class of 2010 on Saturday.
“I’m excited, but not just for myself,” Randle said Monday. “As I told my wife, while this means so much to me, it’s also going to mean a lot to my grandkids and great grandkids when they can come to Canton and see their grandfather’s and great grandfather’s ugly mug enshrined there.”
That, of course, will take a while. Randle and his wife, Candace, have 5-year-old twins – son Jonathan and daughter Ryann.
