NFL great Michael Strahan has rocketed into space _ with a football. Jeff Bezos’ rocket company, Blue Origin, launched the former NFL player and co-host of ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Saturday morning from West Texas. Five others joined him on the 10-minute flight, including the eldest daughter of the first American in space, Alan Shepard. Blue Origin’s rocket is named after her father. It’s the third time Blue Origin has flown passengers in the automated capsule. The football on board will go to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
