Denver released future Hall of Fame cornerback Champ Bailey this past March, but he was back yesterday, having signed a one-day contract so he could retire as a Bronco -- and during a press appearance to mark the transition, he was his usual even-tempered self. Not so one young Champ fan whose reaction was caught on video. According to Joe Kolega, he told his son "he needed to wear his Champ Bailey jersey...and then he asked why after I put it on him...OMG!"
OMG indeed. Check out the hilarious clip of Kolega the Younger's meltdown, followed by one of Champ saying farewell to football.
