Default YESSS!

NEW YORK (AP) -- Marv Albert is returning to the NFL, whenever the lockout ends.
CBS hires Albert to call NFL games


The longtime play-by-play announcer is joining the NFL on CBS team, CBS Sports chairman Sean McManus announced Monday.

Albert worked for NBC Sports from 1977-97 and announced the NFL on NBC for 19 years. He was the play-by-play voice for Westwood One Radio's coverage of Monday Night Football from 2002-09 alongside Boomer Esiason.

Albert said he's not sure who will be in the CBS booth with him. CBS NFL and college basketball play-by-play announcer Gus Johnson left for Fox last month.

"That is still up for discussion," said Albert, who plans to travel with his wife this week on the Orient Express.

Albert will keep his lead role as basketball play-by-play announcer for TNT's Thursday night NBA regular-season and playoff coverage. He also serves as a play-by-play announcer for CBS Sports' and Turner Sports' coverage of the NCAA Division I men's basketball championship.

Albert doesn't know when this NFL job will start, given the lockout, or if the NBA season will start on time because of labor negotiations.

"That's the big question, in my case for both the NBA and NFL, which would be a shame because both have had great success in terms of ratings," he said.

Marv is going to be 70 years old next week.... If the lockout stays in place for too much longer Marv will have retired. I would say 50/50 if he ever calls another nfl game.

Are you saying that Marv Albert has a 50/50 chance of dying before the lockout ends?

He'll be the second man, after Todd Christensen, to call an NFL game wearing women's underwear.
