Now to what we have been covering. One of the biggest moments in our "Gma" colleague Michael Strahan's life. Taking his place alongside other players at the NFL hall of fame. The speech was moving. I predicted tears. I was wrong. The 34-minute speech was upbeat. Full of memories, thank yous, and a lot of laughter. Michael Strahan! Reporter: A phenomenal player. Now officially a living legend. Our very own Michael Strahan. This is not TV Michael. This is football Michael. Reporter: Dubbed the best all-around defender of his generation. Joining the immortals of America's number one sport. The super bowl champ, sharing his moment with the family and coach who inspired him. He's the most amazing, amazing man. And more so than any of that, one hell of a father. I think it's no secret that Tom Coughlin and I did not see eye to eye. But we finally realized we both had the same goal. That was to win. Reporter: And his teammate who he learned to inspire. With you, Eli, I learned, you don't have to be outwardly excited to go out there and whip some people of the football field. Reporter: Not shying away from the woman who will always be his mvp. Mama, you know your baby loves you. I'm not ashamed to say that I'm a mama's boy. Reporter: And revealing he was a fan of Jane fonda. I'm not lying. I have Jane fonda tapes. I was high-kicking and side-kicking. Reporter: Everyone giving a shoutout to his new es teammate. To my ABC family. My TV wife, Kelly Ripa, thank you, baby. To the one and only robin Roberts. Robin, thank you for coming out here to support me. I appreciate you. I love you. Reporter: And from all the folks here at "Gma," Michael, you have done us proud. Anything is absolutely possible. So it's not surprising that he spent the time on the stage giving back the gratitude and entertaining everyone along the way. I love that the bust of Michael shows him with the famous gap-toothed grin. Hay had to do that. It would have been a false one if they didn't. My favorite part is the Jane fonda video. I would pay for a shot of him working out.
