‘The Practice’ star says ‘the game is rigged’ to get her in the Hall of Fame
“I’m not going to sit here and pretend like it’s not happening.
It’s not true,” she said.
“The game is rigging.”
She added that it is the only way she could possibly be eligible to be in the top three.
“I’ve played in the NFL since I was five years old, and I’ve never been asked to do anything that I’m not willing to do.
And that’s a real thing.
It doesn’t matter how old you are or what you look like, if you’re going to play, you’ve got to play,” she continued.
“I’ve never even seen the Hall pass before.
I’ve been asked this question three times.
‘What’s the best game you’ve played?
What’s your best game?’
It’s a question that’s never been given to me.
I’m going to have to say the best.”
Hugh Laurie, the longtime host of the “Sunday Night Football” program, is set to join the list of inductees on Friday.
The Hall of Famer, who played his entire 10-year career with the Philadelphia Eagles, will receive the Hall’s Lifetime Achievement Award on Thursday.
Laurie is also set to be inducted into the Hall on Sunday.
“He’s a tremendous guy, and he’s a wonderful, gracious person,” Kimmel said of Laurie.
“He’s got a lot of great memories in the game, and we’re excited to have him on board.”
Kimmel, who was in attendance Friday, also expressed some frustration that his fellow Hall of Famers, like former New York Giants linebacker Bruce Smith, have not received any mention.
“There are so many people who have played a lot in the history of the game who have been overlooked and have not been given the respect that they deserve,” Kimmel explained.
“It’s very disappointing.
I understand the reason for that.
But I don’t think it’s a fair criticism to people who are here, and have done it so long and so hard.”
Killingworth, who earned the nickname “The Queen Bee” by playing the role of the Queen of Hearts on “The Practice,” was not invited to the Hall.
She also has not been invited to any other prestigious ceremony.
Kimmels mother, who is also a retired NFL player, spoke at the ceremony.
“We have had a great life,” she told Kimmel.
“My daughter is not afraid to tell it like it is, and it’s all because of her love for the game.”
