...Oh, god. This means he's not gonna be able to rein in Collinsworth this year, is he?  Dan Hicks and Tom Hammond have no chance in doing that...

Triumph: Paging Bob Costas to the halftime sermon.


"Friends.  Once again, we are reminded of how frail we are as humans.  As you may already know, a valued and deared member of the NBC family and personal friend of mine, a mentor, a beacon of knowledge in a sea all to often dominated by blowhards, bombthrowers, and never-played-the-games, Al Michaels, was recently arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence, a crime in many states.  While Michaels is presumed innocent and will have his day in court, it just goes to show how we much be vigilant in this world about our personal choices.  On behalf of the NBC family and sportscasting brother -- and sisterhood  -- we wish Michaels well in his personal matters and hope that he gets the help  he needs.  Once again, we are reminded that one mistake can change a lifetime.  It just puts things in perspective.

Thank you.  I'm Bob Costas."

This seems to be one of the instant herpaderp talking points...I must say I'm surprised at the level of herp in the comments. Calling Costas a fairy gets 65 likes, one dislike...I knew he was one of the LOPCATGOPATA but they have really stormed the cnn castle

Not sure a crime can get more victimless than this.

Marv Albert bounced back despite allegations of cross dressing, liking very rough sex, and being sort of rapey, so a little DUI shouldn't be an insurmountable obstacle.

Oh wait, no, lock up the worthless pig who wanted to make a name for himself by arresting a famous broadcaster.

VvonderJesus: First Faith Hill and her fark me boots, now Al Michaels. Look out Cris Collinsworth


Maybe Collinsworth is the smart one.  Sure it's obvious he's drinking during the game, but better in the booth than on the road.

Maybe if Al was as wasted come game time as Collinsworth was, this would never have happened.

I really like the idea implied here that a cop sat and waited for a famous broadcaster to happen by, just in case he's a hair over the legal limit. That was probably what happened -- not, you know, actual, honest law enforcement.

I'll just post my usual sermon for pro athletes - applies to broadcasters as well:

Hire a damn driver.  Hire a damn security guard.  You will thank me later.
