We’ve reached the final days of Brent Musburger’s legendary career as a sports broadcaster.
- Adam Schefter: Aaron Rodgers’ ‘Lose my number’ text came after the only text he ever sent Rodgers
- Fox announcer Joe Davis cites ‘oppressive Cuban government’ during WBC broadcast on FS1
- Stephen A. Smith on ‘coming’ ESPN cuts: ‘Hell, for all I know, I might be one of them.’
- Jamie Erdahl handles S-bomb from FAU’s Johnell Davis like a pro
Here’s the farewell statement from Musburger.
“What a wonderful journey I have traveled with CBS and the Disney company,” Musburger said. “A love of sports allows me to live a life of endless pleasure. And make no mistake, I will miss the arenas and stadiums dearly. Most of all, I will miss the folks I have met along the trail.
“But the next rodeo for me is in Las Vegas. Stop by and we’ll share a cold one and some good stories. I may even buy!”
Wait, Las Vegas? Yep – according to the Associated Press, he’ll be starting a sports handicapping company with his family.
Musburger, who is 77 years old, plans to move to Las Vegas and help his family start a sports handicapping business.
Now that’s truly incredible – a sports handicapping firm in Las Vegas. He couldn’t be moving into a more appropriate industry, could he?
At least Brent got to go out after calling a New Year’s Six bowl game for ESPN. It would have been a farce if the last college football game he called was something like say, the TaxSlayer Bowl in Jacksonville.
