Tony Gonzalez’s Great Reception

Written by Colleen Borst | October 26, 2011

My husband probably thinks that I watch Atlanta Falcons games with him to be supportive of his favorite team, but I’ll confess, it’s for tight end Tony Gonzalez.

Last Sunday’s game was especially cool because toned Tony edged out Cris Carter and Marvin Harrison to become second in career receptions, with 1,104 catches. He now trails only Hall of Famer Jerry Rice. But Tony got one reception that Rice never did: a warm reception from compassionate folks everywhere for the naked anti-fur ad that he and his lovely wife, October, starred in.

Tight end indeed.
