Michael Strahan’s Throwback: His Grin Doesn’t Have 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 Instagram caption was written by a former football player. “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. Always pushed me to be my best. Respect the legend.”

This photo features Strahan as a young man, with his smile prominently displayed. He is also much larger than he is now. Hosting football requires far more muscle mass. Good Morning America

The picture was loved by fans who filled the comments section with flame emoticons and clapping hands. “Two amazing legendary athletes!!”One person wrote. One person 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 image is of a sign handwritten that reads: “If you fear failure, you’re already considering it an option.”Strahan captioned Strahan’s post “This is POWERFUL!!!!! When you think about fear, you’re more likely to fail, when you think about success, your [sic] more likely to succeed. Never FORGET that.”

“Thank you for this Michael,”One person made a comment. “I’ve been struggling with a decision I have to make for a very long time and that woke me up!”Another writer 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 ex-football player is now the father of son Michael Jr. and daughter Tanita. He also shares a stepson Dorian with Wanda Hutchins. Also, he has twins Isabella (and Sophia) with Jean Strahan. 

Strahan, who has had success on and off the field, is no stranger to taking huge risks in order to reap the rewards. His recent Instagram posts show how far he’s come from his start in football, and how much more he wants to achieve.
