Al Michael is too old to be calling terrible games.
Last week, the 77-year-old broadcaster called one of the worst games off all-time between the Broncos and the Colts.
During the game, Michaels appeared to be losing his mind because of how tettible the game was.
Kirk Herbstreit and Al Michaels are absolutely losing their minds in the booth over the Colts vs Broncos. It’s the most entertaining aspect of this unwatchable game.

During an interview with Waddle & Silvy on ESPN Chicago, Michaels said he would retire if the game was terrible.
“If we don’t have a better game than we had last Thursday, then I may retire,” Al Michaels said to Waddle & Silvy. “I’ve done pretty close to 800 NFL games, and with all due respect, guys are trying. I understand and we all know that, but that was grim.”

Fans loved Michaels’ honesty.
I love that Al Michaels is clearly of such an age that he just says whatever he wants. https://t.co/Vd7cRW1hbr
