Al, Fred, and The Thrill of Thursday Night Football

September 16, 2022

Al Michaels and Fred Gaudelli, sports broadcasting legends and more, two days ago in The Wall St. Journal

“It’s the greatest job imaginable,” (announcer) Michaels says. “The years go by in a flash. What was I going to do? People said, ‘Well, why don’t you just step aside and you can play golf?’ I go, ‘Hold on a second. I get to play all the golf I need to play right now and still do this.’”

“I’ve worked with a lot of different announcers that, at certain point in their career, become jaded by the sport,” (producer) Gaudelli says. “Al still gets jazzed by the game.”

— Compare and contrast that attitude and enthusiasm to the painful title of a B. B. King song, The Thrill is Gone.

Your choice.
