Al Michaels’s Profile

Some Al Michaels’s quotes. Goto “Al Michaels’s quotation ” section for more.

Condoleezza Rice, the national security adviser, is right there. she’s in town because her father was at Johnson Smith College. and she was delivering a speech there.

But we’re not supposed to talk anything besides football.

I still believe Emmitt has enough left in the tank to be a productive back over the next couple of seasons.

I’ve always felt that I’m in a spontaneous business and if you script something, if you plan something, it will sound that way.

If I see something dubious, say on a blog or a Web site, and I don’t see it anywhere else, I’ll just go right to the source and check it out.

The Miami Dolphins have to be taken seriously. Here’s a team that seems to be jelling.

When it comes down to it, I’m thinking about football all the time. When I’m on the golf course, I’m thinking about it. It’s never out of your brain.

Any time a running back reaches the age of 31 or 32, he has to lose a step. No one is a freak of nature. No one is going to be able to take the pounding a running back has to take over a 10- or 12-year career and not lose a step.

I think the Cowboys are one of only two teams in all of sports that engender love and hate to that extreme. The other is the Yankees. You love the Yankees or you hate the Yankees.

I will never repeat something verbatim on the air unless I know it’s accurate. And when you go to the source, sometimes there’s a better story beyond the original story. That happens all the time.

If there are dominant teams, people enjoy discussing whether that’s good or bad for the game, and if there aren’t any dominant teams, then people enjoy discussing that.

It’s funny, but when there are dominant teams, there are a number of people who rail about the fact that they’re always seeing the Dallas Cowboys or the San Francisco 49ers or the Green Bay either in the playoffs or in the Super Bowl.

Living here in southern California, I’ll miss hearing Rocky Top for an entire week at the end of December. I was actually looking forward to it. Tennessee has a better fight song than Nebraska.

Monday Night Football started in 1970, and when it started, it was something extremely special because sports had not been aired in prime time. So, it was a novelty, and a lot of people thought it wouldn’t work, and, of course, it worked spectacularly well.

Nobody wants to see teams out of contention showcased in December and January. I’m sure this is something that will be discussed again this off-season.

When dealing in the technology, it becomes a question of whether you overuse something. I think that’s worse than having something technologically available to you and not using it.
