John Madden makes reference to ARS on SNF?

Just making sure I’m not imagining this, but did anyone else hear John Madden say:

  Al Michaels:  You can usually take that to bank! (re: the umpire throwing a penalty flag on a running play):   John Madden:  Yep.  And that's definitely more secure than an auction rate security!   Really?  I didn't even think Madden could count to 10 without using his fingers...Maybe I was hallucinating; anyone else hear it?

I heard that too, pretty funny.

Not to take anything away from "Da bears" impressive defense, including one football's altime greatest goal line stands, Philly lost that game at least ten different ways last night.

Bummed, but looking forward to Wednesday with the Brewers.   And yes, I noted the informed financial commentary. I don't expect much from sports commentators so anyone of them who knows it's not Ben Franklin's statue on the top of Philly's city hall gets a passing grade in my book.   Madden and Michaels are top notch in my book.

These guys may front as dumb armchair QB’s, but it’s really all about the money.  They ain’t travelling the country for the love of the game.
