Todd McFarlane Finally Made It

"The Diesel"

I have been waiting for years for Todd McFarlane to make my football hero, John Riggins, into one of his statues. Yesterday I got the first one available in my town and it's awesome.

John Riggins was the perfect old school football player in the new football system. He was a "Bull in a China Shop" and defenses were broken cups and saucers, laid in waste. Watch Super Bowl XVII; he was the MVP. The China was painted ass wipe blue and orange.

John Riggins was a 1st ballot Hall of Famer.

John Riggins told Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Conner, while he was lying drunk under a banquet table, to "Lighten up Sandy Baby".

Ford Motor Company put John Riggins' name on the side of one of their diesel F-150's, painted it Burgundy and Gold and sold them to eager buyers.

John Riggins just sold an apple that he had taken a bite out of for some ridiculous amount of money, on ebay.

John Riggins is my football hero. Hail to the John Riggins and the Washington Redskins.
