EP 2 // TACKLING A MEDIA CAREER WITH MICHAEL STRAHAN Getcha Popcorn Ready with T.O. and Hatch

    • Sports

When time runs out on their pro sports careers, athletes often struggle with what to do next. Not Michael Strahan. After winning Super Bowl XLII with the New York Giants and retiring from the NFL, he seamlessly transitioned into media, analyzing football before he became a hugely successful morning and daytime talk show host.
In this episode of "Getcha Popcorn Ready," Strahan sits down with T.O. and Hatch to talk about the preparatory moves he made while still playing to set himself up for a non-contact career in front of the camera, and why he's happy he's working on TV rather than on an NFL sideline. They also discuss the league's Rooney Rule and the continued scarcity of black head coaches, as well as the NFL's controversial list of the 100 best NFL players of all time and why it makes them question the meaning of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
