John Madden Retires

caliendo_maddenjpg

In honor of John Madden’s announcement today regarding his retirement I thought it would be fitting to recount some of the many stupid things he has said over the years while pretending to be a sportscaster.

So, let’s have some fun with this one.  I’ll be gone for the next week with little to no access to the www world.  I’ll start us off with a few of my personal favorites.  What can you come up with?  Share your favorite stupid John Madden quote in the comments.

“That was a dumb play. Dumb play. You know that was a dumb play. I mean that was a dumb play. I’ve seen dumb plays, but that was a dumb play.”

“You can only make one play at a time.”

“Anytime you have a game, you have to be ready to play.”

“When you lose your best cornerback and your punt returner, I’d say that’s a double loss.”

“First down is a good down.”

“You never want to go backwards in the endzone.”

“They’re goin after him like uh….uh…..sugar is on him or somethin”

“From the waist down, Earl Campbell has the biggest legs I have ever seen on a running back.”

“He got up looking out of his earhole!”

“The fewer rules a coach has, the fewer rules there are for players to break.”

when referring to Troy Aikmen losing his contact lens in a game: “Here’s a guy, that when he wears his contacts, he see’s better.”

“Here’s a guy, that when he runs, he goes faster.”

So what do you have for us?  What’s your favorite Madden quote?

Leaving For Jamaica

After man long months of training, preparation and fund raising we are ready to go.  Tomorrow we will board a plane and head to Jamaica to minister to many children and families.  Please pray for our team as we go to minister to people in schools, villages and churches.

The blog will be quiet this week unless I can find some wifi near our base camp.  If I do find a hotspot I’ll provide updates here and through twitter.
