As a football junkie most of my life, memories of certain eras remain vivid even years — decades — later.
During the 1980s, something which was always worth looking forward to hearing was the NFL announcing team of Pat Summerall and John Madden. The two became the No. 1 team for CBS almost immediately after they began working together.
When you watched a game and Summerall and Madden were in the booth, you knew it was special. Perhaps the only frustrating aspect of it was they didn’t call many Falcon games, although that was through no fault of the men in the booth.
