Barry Sanders is like Selena!
If you are any sort of football fan you should remember Barry Sanders. He was a running back for the Detroit Lion's who retired way to early. He retired healthy and just two years prior had signed a long term extension. He was arguable the best running back in NFL history. When he retired he was just over 1400 yards away from breaking Walton Payton's all time rushing record. Emmit Smith later broke the record and to this day they are the only two with more rushing yards than Barry. He rushed for over 1500 yards four years in a row. He was amazing to watch and was dearly missed when he just up and retired. If you really think about it Barry Sanders is like Selens Quintanilla! In case you don't know who she is she is a Tejano Music superstar who was gunned down by her fan club president in 1995. I know what your thinking, what the ....? Barry Sanders was under appreciated and the fans of Detroit didn't realize what he did for them until he was gone. Much like Selena who got more famous after she was murdered.
