Idk man...could Michaels have called that Artie championship run in Lord of the Anal Ring Toss as good as Howard?
Howard is wearing Scrooge McDuck old man slippers.
EVERY time I watch Schunday Night Football on NBcshee - I hear that schame AFfect in Al's voische that I hear in Howard's.
I'm waiting for the comments to roll in on this one .
This thread feels like Christmas morning .
I'm going with Al.
Plus Michaels can't say 'ball' he says buol... it's infuriating, but I think he's one of the greats.
I give Al as TON of credit in that he's the only broadcaschter that hasch the candid balls to talk about point schpreads and other taboo things.
I'm guessing that Howard did the same thing fishing before he evolved. Line jerking everywhere.
Lest we know that isn't the real Al Michaels.
Michaels is way too slick/polished now. He's seen it all, and has had it way too good for way too long. You can practically hear the 5 star restaurants, country clubs, and $5,000 an hour hookers in his voice. That slickness has rubbed off on Collinsworth. They're obviously very good at what they do, but the fact that they know this kind of spoils it, and them.
I like Tirico: he's a feisty sunnuvabitch, especially since they paired him with everybody's favorite adorable psychopath, Jon Gruden.
Michaels and that slimy puke Collinsworth couldn't suck more as announcers. I mute them in order to enjoy the game.
A few years before the "Miracle on Ice" call and many years before all the slickness, Al had this one in the '72 NLCS clincher (he was the Reds' #1 announcer on WLW in Cincinnati). You can hear he had a flair for the dramatic and lots of feeling for the moment at just 26 years old. Too bad they left off the few sentences before Moose throws the last pitch - Al did a Vin Scully-esque scene-setting that was great. I was at UC that year, surrounded by rabid Reds fans, and I heard this all on replay because a guy in the suite gave me an extra ticket for the game...$10 for a first row box seat right behind 3rd base.
Robin, they begged me to do the announshing for the Shuper Bowl, but I just don't have the time.
