NFL Network Spices Up Fourth of July

little wordy (what a shock to Cowboys fans, huh?). But that's why God created editors. 

I don't want to give away too much, but you'll hear clips of every NFL team's radio voice. You'll hear Mike Keith discuss his excellent call of the Music City Miracle play against Buffalo, and you'll hear me explain why I hate my call of Emmitt Smith's NFL rushing record-breaking carry against Seattle. You'll also hear a pretty lively chat about the late Howard Cosell (Greg Papa thinks he's the greatest sportscaster ever; I respected his intellect but wasn't a fan, and a comprehensive piece about the Great Man shows why). 

By the way, the NFL Network continues to grow by leaps and bounds. In fact, Ohlmeyer says that growth is "unprecedented," and that "no other network has been in 25 million homes faster than we have. Not ESPN or anyone else. And it will only get bigger." 

He didn't have much to say on the record about the conflict, as some see it, between the Network and the Cowboys Channel, but he did say every team will get an hour each Saturday this fall to, in effect, take over the Network and show the country what it's got. 

For one hour on the 4th of July, they're turning it over to three of the luckiest men in America. It was fun to do. I hope it's fun for you to watch. At least it'll give you something to carry you over until Jerry Jones' Special Edition kicks off its new season on July 23, and camp starts a week later. 

Until then, enjoy those pennant races.
