John Madden has retired.
NFL play-by-play will never be the same. Madden has been the standard for sports broadcasting, especially pro football, for thirty years. This year’s Super Bowl was his last game, and it was a great one. Madden was also a great coach. His winning percentage is the best of all time, and he did it at an age before most guys get a chance to be a head coach in the NFL. And the video game that bears his name is the best selling title every year.
The BOOM! will be missed. As will the turdukens every Thanksgiving.
