Andre Rison was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts in 1989. He caught 52 passes for 820 yards with four touchdown receptions and showing great promise, but was traded to the Atlanta Falcons as part of a deal for the #1 pick in the 1990 NFL Draft, which the Colts used to select Jeff George.
Rison was giving  the nickname “Bad Moon” Rison from ESPN sportscaster Chris Berman, alluding to the song “Bad Moon Rising” by Creedence Clearwater Revival.
Rison won a Super Bowl championship with the Green Bay Packers in 1996 against the New England Patriots, scoring the first points of the game on a 54-yard touchdown catch from quarterback Brett Favre. He also won a Grey Cup championship with the Toronto Argonauts in 2004. He is one of the few players to win professional football championships in both the United States of America and Canada. He was released by the Argonauts during the 2005 CFL season. He holds an NFL record for scoring a touchdown with 7 different teams.

Welcome to Smallthoughtsinasportsworld. We keep it fun and we keep interesting and informative. On Tuesdays we go back in time with Old School Tuesdays, on Thursdays we keep it fun by Smallthoughts Trivia Thursday and on Fridays ...it is Smallthoughts: Rant of the Week and Smallthoughts:Rave of the Week and we also post the answer from Smallthoughts:Trivia Thursday. I am a lifelong New York Mets, Knicks and Jets and Giants fan. I root hard for my teams and have rooted for them even when it wasn't and in some cases still isn't easy. I enjoy talking sports, and on here I get to write about it as well. I have my thoughts hence Small thoughts, we will not always agree, but respectfully speak about what we feel. I invite your comments and feedback as well. You can also follow me on twitter @bklynboy59 and facebook Jerry bklynboy Small
