Are the Rams planning something for the 15th anniversary of the Great Show on Turf? According to former St. Louis Rams wide receiver Torry Holt, there's something in the works. The future Hall of Famer hinted at an event within the first minute of a 13-minute (non-trolling) interview with Mike Florio.
It's amazing how time flies. But it's interesting; I just got a text today from Kurt (Warner) talking about our 15th year anniversary that's coming up this year and some of the plans that he has and some of the plans the Rams have.
Huh. So you don't say?
Now, if you want some feels, he continued:
It's amazing how time flies, but I'm so happy and so thankful and humble to have been apart of that ball club and the Greatest Show on Turf. And that name sticks, it's in history, and it'll never go away. It feels real good to be apart of that.
Did anybody else just get the warm fuzzies and some chills?
Later in the interview Florio asked about Holt's desire wear the number 81. Torry explained:
When (Az-Zahir Hakim) went to Detroit, 81 became available. A lot of people recognized me from the number 81. It resonated from my college days at NC State. So I wanted to get that number immediately.
Then it got, uh, interesting:
And then eight plus one equals nine. I wore number nine when I was in high school. And number nine came about from Michael Jordan when he was playing in the Olympics and I'm a huge Michael Jordan fan. I wanted to wear that nine so I could be like Mike.
Odd reasoning, but, no doubt, 81 was a good number for Holt. He "continued to roll."
There's more in the interview. If you have a chunk of 13 minutes, you should absolutely watch the video. He talked about guys purchasing their desired jersey number, the best player on the '99 team and his expectations to win more Super Bowls after the '99 season, Spy Gate, the Holt Brother Foundation and more.
