ADIOS!

John Madden, a fixture in NFL broadcast booths for 30 years, has decided to retire, he announced Thursday in a statement released by NBC Sports.

CAN I GET A GTFO! Look I like Madden and his shitty videogame but the game has past him by. I will be sad though. I mean now which "analyst" is going to inform me about stadium horticulture, turducken, weather patterns and how the immaculate reception was bullshit?

There is a silver lining to this that now Madden can spend some quality with Brett Favre as the two of them can go on road trips on Madden's bus and plan the rest of their lives together. It's a scene right out of a Hugh Grant movie...

I loathe Dennis Miller. Yes, I do get most of his references I just don't think he's funny just because he's somewhat intelligent. And yes Girl out of Cleveland, I am with ya even though he hardly ever said anything of subsance.

There are so many broadcasters who think that they're bigger than the game that even at his worst, it was refreshing to listen to a guy who was just excited to be talking about his sport.

And yes, that sounded cliche, but I stand by it.
