Post Al Michaels to stay w/ MNF

NFL Notebook: Michaels to stay with MNF in '06
Wednesday, July 27, 2005

By The Associated Press


Al Michaels is staying with "Monday Night Football" when it moves from ABC to ESPN for the 2006 NFL season, parting with John Madden after four seasons in the booth together.

Michaels has been the play-by-play man on "Monday Night Football" since 1986, the past three with Madden as analyst.

After this season, Madden is moving to NBC, which is taking over the Sunday night time slot in 2006 for what the NFL considers its main prime-time package.

"I feel like I'm a creature of Monday night. I'm home and I'm staying home," said Michaels, who had been heavily pursued by NBC, but said he wanted to stay where he has worked for 29 years -- ABC and ESPN are owned by the Disney Co.

Michaels will be joined in the booth by Joe Theismann. Michelle Tafoya and Suzy Kolber will be the sideline reporters.

I never liked listening to Madden anyway. MNF wouldn't seem right without Michaels.

Michaels and Joe T. in the same booth. Is there enough room for their egos?

It was kind of funny watching MNF with Madden when the Steelers played. You knew it must of killed him when he had to say something positive or that we did something right. lol
