    After Larry Fitzgerald scored one of his TD's last night, the camera showed his dad who is a sportswriter in Minn., who was covering the game and was not cheering for his son. Michaels commented that Larry's father was a true journalist and was not cheering for his son. (I think he might have also used the word objective to describe him.) Michaels put emphasis on the word true. I know Michaels is a political conservative, and I believe this was a direct dig against the Mainstream Media and their slobbering love affair (HT: B. Goldberg) with Obama. Ironically, Michaels works for NBC, which is the worst offender in this sordid man-love affair with Obama.

    Regardless, Al Michaels is one of the greatest sportscasters of all-time. I hope he sticks around for as long as he can.

    I picked up on that, though I did not know he was a conservative. I have been an Al Michaels guy for years. An article I read about him in Sports Illustrated back in the 80s made me want to be a sportscaster/writer. Obviously, I didn't follow through! I digress....it's not just because of his Miracle on Ice call, nor is it the fact that he used to broadcast Reds games. I think Al Michaels is the best on TV. I look more forward to Sun night football now than I do MNF, thanks to Al. Knowing Al and CC will do the Pro Bowl together makes me want to watch.

    From 1971-1973, Al and Joe Nuxhall did the games. Then Al was replaced by a little known minor league broadcaster from the Mets organization named Marty Brennaman.
