Sunday Night Football always consists of three things: great football, Al Michaels, and the always informative John Madden. However, what you might not know is that John Madden, long time football announcer, does not trust chowder, more importantly, clam chowder.
Mr. Madden, most famously known for his role in the recent turducken epidemic, was directly quoted Sunday night, stating, "I just don't trust chowder." When interviewed on the matter after the game, he had no comment due to a late night reservation at Morton's Steak House in Downtown Baltimore.
Much speculation has been drawn about his anti-trust movement against chowder, and as Campbell Soup CEO Douglas Conant commented, "It is unfortunate such a great American eater doesn't trust our products."
NBC and co-host of Sunday Night Football Al Michaels had no comment on the matter, and Campbell Soup spokesman LaDainian Tomlinson mentioned of long time friend John Madden, "I had no idea."
After the trust issues subsided, John was back to his same old self, being one of the best football commentators in recent years. Most famously known for his top-notch analysis and informative speeches most recently quoted Sunday night saying, "to win you have to score more points than the other team," and "this is what I don't get about football, there isn't a 14 point play."
Luckily the football was just as good as it's play-by-play stars, as the Baltimore Ravens took down the Washington Redskins 24-10 at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. Rookie coach John Harbaugh has his team at 9-4 with the Pittsburgh Steelers coming to Baltimore next week for a tough divisional game.
Luckily, the game is not at Heinz Field, I'd hate to have John Madden face his fear of ketchup.
