I assume at least one-third of them are Sanders diving at a running back's feet and missing tackles badly?

I saw Deion play at the world's oldest and one of the prettiest ballpark (Labatt Park)with the Albany-Colonie Yankees against the London Tigers. Sanders set up about 25 feet behind 2nd base, the friend I was at the game with noticed, so we kept an eye on him, sure enough, 2nd guy up that inning crushed one to the track, Deion was camped under it, waiting for the ball to come down.

I've never seen Glenn Gould perform live, but I've heard many of his recordings. He was a very complex genius, and no one has ever played Bach better,

I've never seen Deion Sanders live, but I've seen him many times on TV and in films. He too was a master of his craft, fully as artistic as Glenn Gould.

Sanders deserves his place in the Hall of Fame, and Gould deserves his place in the short list of incredible performers. The comparison is valid.

One of the biggest compliments I think I can pay to an athlete is this, I couldn't stand him when he played for someone else and loved him when he played on my favorite teams.

I walk through the Glenn Gould Memorial Gardens on my way home from football games. So there's that.

FWIW, it was supposed to look like Glenn Gould and was a reference to this.
