Michael Buffer was recently elected to the Boxing Hall of Fame -- without ever throwing a punch, training a fighter or growing a handlebar mustache in 1905. He earned his immortal spot alongside boxing greats Jack Dempsey and Marvin Hagler based on repeating five words, "Let's get ready to rumble!!!" With that in mind, it's about time other sports opened up their Hall of Fame inductions to some five-word wonders:
