The Big Apple, we could forgive.
When LaDainian Tomlinson announced his retirement this week, signing a one-day contract with the Chargers in order to leave the NFL with the franchise that brought him into the league, it really did seem like he'd never actually left San Diego.
Just like that, we could forget he was ever a Jet.
But, oh, how feelings might have been different had our man decided to continue chasing his dreams ... it hurts to even say ... a mile high.
Five days after a poignant ceremony at Chargers Park, where he walked away a proud member of the team that drafted him 11 years ago, Tomlinson said he'd felt almost certain since late last fall that 2011 would be his final season.
But he did his due diligence up until recent weeks. And he acknowledged there was one team - only one - he considered playing for in 2012.
It wasn't the Chargers. And, no, not even a call from Bill Belichick would have kept LT in the NFL.
