Anticipation was high — form this Packers fan and plenty of other football enthusiasts — when NFL Network announced that it would be airing its pieced-together Super Bowl I full game, complete with Jim Simpson’s radio call.
The disappointment that followed — seven or more talking heads drowning out Simpson, adding little to the three-hour presentation, was poorly received, to say the least. But the league’s official network will attempt to make amends this Friday at 8 p.m., when it will run the footage taken mostly from NFL Films coverage.
According to NBC Sports’ Michael David Smith, the 90-minute broadcast will be preceded by an intro from host Chris Rose (hopefully a very brief one), then the original radio broadcast over the footage.
Ready for that for sure!
