The Team of John Madden & Pat Summerall

For their work as a commentary crew doing NFL games together, it’s impossible to separate John Madden and Pat Summerall. Sure, both did things separately, Summerall also did golf and Tennis coverage for CBS, Madden continued on to be the namesake for the most popular football video game on the planet and worked with Al Michaels in the booth, but Madden & Summerall were just magic together and needed to be inducted together as one entity. Madden was the over-the-top color commentator, whose enthusiasm and excitement was so energizing for viewers and made the broadcasts fun even for bad games. Summerall was the calm, straight-faced play-by-play man who had an incredible ability to paint a beautiful picture of what was happening every second of the game. As a team, they were perfect together and it is only appropriate that their commentary team got inducted as one single entity, though both could be inducted separately for their other contributions to sports and in particular sports broadcasting.
