PFP Sports & Celebrity Talent recently hired Chicago Bears Hall of Famer Dan Hampton to speak at a private club event in Ohio and he received rave reviews. If you’re looking for a reasonably priced sports speaker who can tell entertaining stories and/or give a motivational speech, you should consider Hampton, says Jonathan Wexler, booking agent for PFP Sports and Celebrity Talent Agency.
Hampton was one of the most dominating defensive players of his generation. A first-round pick by the Chicago Bears in 1979 after an All-America career at Arizona, Hampton went onto play 12 seasons for the Bears, earning first or second-team All-Pro honors six times as either a lineman or end. ...

Is there anything more exciting than March Madness? In my opinion, the NCAA men’s basketball tournament is the single greatest event in American sports. In terms of emotion, suspense, excitement and intrigue, I can’t think of another sporting event that compares. Where else can David actually beat Goliath?
This point was driven home over the weekend when No. 9 seeded Northern Iowa upset No. 1 seeded and tournament favorite Kansas, 69-67. The game will certainly go down as one of the greatest upsets in NCAA tournament history. Here was a Kansas team that had several future NBA first round players on its roster, was Big 12 regular season and conference tournament champions and was ranked #1 or near the top for most of the regular season. The game against Northern Iowa was supposed to be a cakewalk on the way to a berth in the Sweet 16. The only problem is that no one told Northern Iowa.

Merlin Olsen, NFL Hall of Famer tackle, died early Thursday at a hospital in Duarte, Calif. He was 69.
Olsen’s brother Orrin, announced his death and said he had been treated for mesothelioma, a deadly form of lung cancer. Olsen was also a longtime color commentator for NBC’s pro football and Rose Bowl telecasts, working along side Dick Enberg.
Olsen also acted on television in NBC’s “Little House on the Prairie” and in his own series, “Father Murphy.”
NFL star, Deacon Jones, told The Los Angeles Times in 1985:
“Merlin had superhuman strength. If I was beating my man inside, he’d hold him up and free me to make the tackle. If he had to make an adjustment to sacrifice his life and limb, he would make it. A lot of the plays I made were because he or the others would make the sacrifice.”
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell released a statement after the passing of Olsen on Thursday.
“Merlin was a larger-than-life person, literally and figuratively, and leaves an enormously positive legacy.”
Our thoughts and condolences go out to Merlin’s family.
