Just caught a short-story by Marv Albert and Rich Gannon doing the Jags/Dolphins game today.
Marv was explaining that a "fan" approached Gannon and was asking him like, "Dude, what was it like throwing to Fred Biletnikoff!"
Gannon went on to add, "He must have had me confused with another Raiders' quarterback like Ken Stabler, or Daryle Lamonica. I think he thought I was George Blanda".
Alcohol must be involved here somewhere.
"Be on time, pay attention, and play like Hell when I tell you to" - John Madden's three and only rules.

QANTAS - even when an engine explodes the catering/service is STILL the biggest disaster on a Qantas flight!!!
Gannon should have said it was great but I liked throwing to Cliff Branch better just to see the reaction. Or wish I could have thrown to Tim Brown or Jerry Rice....
“We had an argument that was ongoing for about 50 years, about how to build a club. Where do you start? His thing was you start with the corners. My thing was to start with the offensive line.” John Madden

or, "I really liked throwing to Warren Wells and Billy Cannon"
JIM OTTO "00"
In the 1960 NFL Draft there was a center that was completely overlooked by every NFL team. 15 centers were selected that year. Jim Otto was not one of them. After 308 consecutive games and 20 years later, Jim Otto becomes the Raiders first hall of famer.
He should have said that it was great, but that handing it off to Bronko Nagurski was an even bigger thrill.
What concerns me most is that you are watching the Jags/Phins game
