Michael Strahan Posts Throwback: His Grin Hasn’t Changed

Michael StrahanHis smile is instantly recognisable. His gap-toothed grin is famous all over the world, and a recent throwback shot proves it’s the one thing about him that hasn’t changed. 

Strahan’s Famous Smile

“Hanging with the legend Bruce Smith,” the former football player captioned the Instagram post. “The only member in NFL history of the 200 sack club! I idolized him as a young player and now I’m lucky to call him a great friend. He has always pushed me to be the best. Respect the legend.”

The photo shows Strahan at his earliest years, with his familiar smile fronted. He is also much larger in the photo that he is today. Football requires a lot of muscle mass, which is why he is so large. Good Morning America

The picture was loved by fans who filled the comment section with flame emoticons and clapping hands. “Two amazing legendary athletes!!” one person wrote. Another commented, “Thanks so much, guys! And, that’s pretty darn cool about the sack club!!! That’s quite A LOT of sacks there!!! Congrats!!!”

His Inspiring Message to Fans

This throwback picture comes after Strahan’s noticeable absence from GMA. He’s been keeping a relatively low profile on social media, but he’s still been connecting with fans online. The post immediately preceding his picture with Smith inspired many of the morning show host’s followers. 

The picture is of a handwritten sign that reads, “If you fear failure, you’re already considering it an option.” Strahan captioned the post, “This is POWERFUL!!!!! When you think about fear, you’re more likely to fail, when you think about success, your [sic]You are more likely to succeed. Never FORGET that.”

“Thank you for this Michael,” one person commented. “I’ve been struggling with a decision I have to make for a very long time and that woke me up!” Another wrote, All of it true Michael. Thank you.”

There’s no official statement indicating why Strahan hasn’t been on our screens for the past few mornings; most assume he is taking a well-deserved break and spending some time with his kids. The former football player is father of son Michael Jr. and daughter Tanita. He also shares a stepson Dorian with Wanda Hutchins. He also shares a home with twins Isabella (and Sophia) with Jean Strahan. 

Strahan, who has had success on the football field as well as in front of cameras, is no stranger to taking huge risks for a bigger pay-off. His recent Instagram posts show how far he’s come from his start in football, and how much more he wants to achieve.
