Sometimes there are happy little accidents.
Such is the case with the Denver Broncos enshrined in the Hall of Fame as part of the 2019 class. If you recently took at tour of the the bust gallery in Canton, you no doubt saw the empty shelves that would soon display the busts of this year’s class.
If you look closely, you’ll see that Champ Bailey was supposed to be directly above Pat Bowlen on the left-hand side. However, when Mile High Report visited the busts on Sunday morning following enshrinement, the order had changed.

Ed Reed, for some reason, had switched places with Champ and was now featured directly to the right of Pat Bowlen. Why?
Ed Reed’s bust is on the top and out of alphabetical order because his hair is too tall to fit on the appropriate shelf. pic.twitter.com/p0BwyvukUP— MileHighReport (@MileHighReport) August 4, 2019
Bob Ross was right. Sometimes there are happy little accidents. Because Ed Reed’s hair was so bodacious, he had to be moved and Champ now gets to spend eternity next to Mr. B. Frankly, you’d be hard pressed to find anyone who doesn’t agree with this solution. Let this arrangement never be corrected.
