The legendary analyst will serve as a special advisor (with no pay) to NFL commissioner Roger Goddell. I'm sure Madden reads Hot Clicks on his bus, so I'd like to offer him some advice on what his first order of business should be. John, please tell the commish that offering blacked-out games on NFL.com is completely and totally useless when the games won't be available until midnight of each Sunday. Thanks.

And it's not because pennant races are heating up. It's because this is the time of year when veterans make rookies dress up in ridiculous outfits as a lighthearted hazing ritual.

Joe Wilson's outburst toward President Obama the other night has inspired Bleacher Report to look at the most famous hecklers in sports history.
Ryan Scopelliti, of Fairfield, Conn., says, "Jimmy, you've gotta put something funny up about how ridiculous the announcers were during last night's game. Not only were they blatantly rooting for the Steelers, but what was with  Collinsworth and Polomalu??? Are they dating? It was ridiculous." I'm way ahead of you, Ryan.
