The thing that made him different was his amazing ability to tell stories about his past experiences and career as a player. He saw and played with so many of the greatest players ever to play the game. And he was such a raconteur, a true conversationalist who had a great way with words.
He was Jack Paar to Marty's Jay Leno. A lot of people like Jay Leno I guess.
Does that mean Al Michaels is Johnny Carson?
