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...

Al Michaels epic gambling reference for the Pro Bowl win

When it comes to veiled gambling references in professional sports broadcasting, Brent Musburger and Al Michaels are the Ali and Frazier of the field.  With NBC having the rights to the Pro Bowl and not the Super Bowl this year, Michaels and partner Cris Collinsworth made the trip to Hawaii for their final, meaningless assignment of the year.  And since broadcasting an exhibition...
