Geek of the Week

This week's winner is sports analyst Al Michaels who, in addition to demanding big bucks, wants a private jet to be part of any NFL TV deal he makes with NBC or ESPN in 2006.

That's a stark contrast from his broadcast partner John Madden, whose lavish travel requirement is a bus.

Apparently, Michaels is legendary in for needing special treatment, starting with the requirement he must stay in the finest hotels. Since Michaels is the NFL's top play-by-player, ESPN and NBC may entertain his "request."

1 other geekspeak:

  • Wow, what an ego.

    Imagine is one stipulation in Bob Costas' next NBC contract is that the MUST get back the rights to Major League Baseball.

    I doubt that Dick Ebersol will give in to Al Michaels demands. I hope NBC's coverage will be more sports-oriented than aiming for entertainment...
