If ever there was a way to get the internet streaming of WDVE in realtime with TV, that would forever rock!
I really feel Michaels is overrated, uses too many cliches, and of course is ant-Steeler. He still feeds of off his Lake Placid Team 1980 USA Hockey announcing
Madden still whines about the "Immaculate Reception" and we all know how he feels about the Steelers !
And both of them "jump on the bandwagon" of the winning team when the game is decided.
You are 120% correct - nothing beats hearing Bill Hillgrove & Tunch Ilkin with their call of the game. In fact I went out to NFL.com and listened to the radio highlights. Almost wish I could here Mryon as well !
