    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?
    Americans love a winner. Americans will not tolerate a loser....Americans play to win all of the time. I wouldn't give a hoot in hell for a man who lost and laughed...the very idea of losing is hateful to an American.
