Kennedy retirement rumors shift into overdrive

  Kennedy retirement rumors shift into overdrive Like clockwork, Washington has whipped itself into a frenzy over rumors of a possible retirement on the Supreme Court. All eyes are on Justice Anthony Kennedy, 81, who reportedly considered calling it quits last spring. As the court's current term winds to a close, speculation about his plans has again swept the capital, with court watchers searching for clues.Those who say Kennedy is here to stay - at least for now - point to the fact that he's already hired his law clerks for the next term, as Above the Law reported.

It’s fitting that they retire No . 34 , as it was also worn by Cookie Gilchrist. This is a way to honor them both. Lately, not so much…. Of course, when thurman thomas was playing, the Patriots were 2 easy wins every year. That’s why they were called the patsies.

The Bills in March announced plans to retire the No . 34 jersey Thomas wore. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2007 after a 13-year career during which he ran for more than 12,000 yards and 65 touchdowns.

The retirement ceremony will take place on Oct. 29 when the Bills play the Patriots on Monday Night Football. For his part, Thomas is officially overwhelmed.

In 12 seasons with the Bills, Thomas ran for 11,938 yards and 65 touchdowns. He made five consecutive Pro Bowls and two All-Pro teams from 1989 through 1993, helping Buffalo make four consecutive Super Bowls along the way. In each season from 1989 through 1992, he also led the NFL in yards from scrimmage. (He's the only player in NFL history to lead the league in yards from scrimmage in four straight seasons.)

Thomas began to slow down toward the end of his Bills tenure and eventually struggled with injuries during his final season with the team. He spent a lone year with the division rival Miami Dolphins before officially retiring after the 2000 season. He became eligible for the Hall of Fame in 2006 and was officially elected on the second ballot, joining Rayfield Wright, Gene Hickerson, Michael Irvin, Charlie Sanders, and Roger Wehrli in the Class of 2007.

When his number is retired, he'll join former teammates Jim Kelly and Bruce Smith as Buffalo Bills to receive such an honor.
