Splistville in the broadcast booth

Larry pointed me to the story of Pat Summerall and John Madden splitting up as broadcast partners after the Super Bowl. I had at first thought it meant Summerall was retiring, but apparently not. So, I'm not sure what to make of this. Time for a change, I guess.

Whoever Fox gets to pair with Madden (assuming Madden wants to go on with a new partner), that person should be as brief and succint as Summerall to complement Madden's bluster. The article mentions Joe Buck, and I think that would be a good choice. Tough act to follow, though.
