AL MICHAELS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Al Michaels Sounds Off On 1987 World Series Sound Level

As the 1987 St. Louis Cardinals regular season concluded in a most promising manner, with a division title, I made the trek to St. Louis for the first two games of the National League Championship Series, a set in which the Cards prevailed over the then-and-now pesky San Francisco Giants in seven games. Next up were the Minnesota Twins in the World Series. To say I was delighted...

You can now make a bet on Al Michaels’ gambling references

One of my favorite Super Bowl traditions are the wacky Super Bowl prop bets.  This year is no different.  The folks at Bovada have done an awesome job putting forward such bets as Russell Wilson’s passing yards versus the national gas price average, how many times “deflated balls” will be said (I’d take the over 3), and even how many viewers the game will have (again,...

Happy Birthday: Al Michaels joins the 70s club

Al Michaels hits the big 7-0 today. Michaels now is a member of the 70s-club in sports TV. As I wrote earlier this year in USA Today, he has something in common with the rest of the esteemed fraternity that includes Brent Musburger, Dick Vitale, Verne Lundquist, Marv Albert and many others: No desire to retire anytime soon. Richard Deitsch of SI.com did a long two-part interview...

Al Michaels opens up about his cheeky gambling references

Al Michaels is one of the most successful, respected broadcasters who has ever stepped behind the microphone.  Multiple Super Bowls.  The Miracle on Ice.  Sunday Night Football.  The Olympics.  BASEketball.  He’s done it all.

Michaels on Cosell: ‘If you made him king, he’d want to be God’

I am really looking forward to Al Michaels’ new autobiography, “You Can’t Make This Up,” co-written by L. Jon Wertheim of Sports Illustrated. The book will be out Nov. 18. Michaels has seen it all and then some during his 50-plus years in the booth. And that includes spending some of those years with  Howard Cosell. The current edition of Sports Illustrated features an excerpt...

Kings fan Al Michaels meets the Stanley Cup

It’s not too often that fans are made aware of broadcasters and their fan allegiances.  One of those rare exceptions is Al Michaels and the Los Angeles Kings.  Although his most famous call (and the most famous call in sports history) comes from the hockey world, Michaels does not call NHL games for NBC as that’s Doc Emrick’s turf.  So, he’s free to to cheer on his beloved...

Video: Al Michaels places a curling bet with Rebecca Lowe

The transitions between anchors are sometimes the best moments of the Olympic coverage.  On NBCSN as early morning host Rebecca Lowe passed the baton to Al Michaels, the voice of Sunday Night Football dropped one of his patented gambling references that are the stuff of internet legend.  Michaels bet Lowe "even up, 15 pence" on an American curling victory against Great Britain...
