After Michael Strahan was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2014 on Saturday, Feb. 2, it was no surprise that Kelly Ripa and the staff of "Live With Kelly and Michael" would salute him when he returned to the morning talk show on Feb. 3.
Viewers were not disappointed.
Kelly and Michael did not make their entrance as usual. At the top of the show, Kelly was dressed in a Michael Strahan t-shirt. She shared the news that Michael had been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Then Michael made his grand entrance, and the studio became filled with streamers, confetti, and balloons.
Michael was further honored as a football jersey with Michael's number 92 on it was raised to the rafters of the studio.
Later, a video was shown of Michael as he went about his daily activities on Saturday and his reaction as he waited with friends to receive the news about his inclusion into the Hall of Fame.
At the end of the show, a cake and champagne were presented to Michael.
This was Michael's second year of eligibility. He was overlooked last year, but Michael said he really wanted it this year since Super Bowl XLVIII was played where he used to play for the New York Giants.
Congratulations, Michael Strahan, for being inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2014!
