CANTON, Ohio — Jerry Rice is a mighty sharp dresser. But among the items absent from his closet has been a sports jacket the color of faded industrial strength mustard.
“I’m an edgy guy, I like to take chances,” Rice joked here Friday afternoon. “But this is going to be the only one.”
Sort of like Rice himself. There will be no duplicates.
Friday night, the former 49ers and Raiders wide receiver was officially presented his yellow Pro Football Hall of Fame jacket at the banquet that traditionally takes place on the eve of today’s induction ceremonies.
