Anthony Adams announces his retirement in sad-yet-hysterical fashion

Shutdown Corner

All right, this is great. Anthony Adams is a nine-year veteran of the league, a defensive tackle first for the 49ers and, most recently, for the Bears. He's decided to step away from the game, and after a slow pan of his achievements, we see him in his home office, making preparations for what will surely be a lavish retirement ceremony at the high-end "Whit Cassell" restaurant. What follows is ... well, you'll have to watch, but it's fun stuff.

Good on ya, Anthony. Walking away from the game you've known your whole life has to be rough, but you found a way to do it with class (and paper napkins). And for the record, we'd have taken your call.
