It seems John Madden needs a little lesson of what late fourth quarter in Monday Night Blowouts means. When Michaels is dropping the name Push, Nevada and is saying the runner is out of bounds at the 1 with a few seconds left, it means most people he knows bet the under, which was anywhere from 37-38 depending on when the game was bet. When the only people in the stands at 12:30 in the morning go crazy about Pittsburgh getting the touchdown with one second left, it means they bet the over. And asking why anyone would care whether Pittsburgh would get a meaningless touchdown at the end of the game, well John, the only people watching at that point are the people who bet the over/under, or those that have Kordell in their Fantasy Leagues. Again John, welcome to Monday Night, where the names may change, but the blowouts remain the same.
Thank you Mr. Wanz for the check, now you get an AWA World Title Reign. But be careful, my boy Greg is a heat machine.
Did anyone else notice the emphasis Al used on the touchdown call "Kordell goes up and OVER for the touchdown"? I'm so glad Al has a little love for those of us who get something out of those "useless" td's at the end of the game.
