SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – A 2-hour prime time special announcing the National Football League 2014 schedule, for all its hype, could not keep Coach John Madden away from the bocce ball court.
“Fight for your team and fight for victory and all that,” he told the KCBS Morning Crew, “that’s what I had to do last night.”
The team noted from his tone that Madden’s prowess on the court last night, like his ability in general to operate a digital video recorder, may be in need further refinement. Madden learned the Oakland Raiders would face the San Francisco 49ers from a fellow bocce player, rather than from a DVR.
Coach was quick to add that the hours of speculation on various NFL match-ups, while too far in the future to be very meaningful, is not entirely pointless.
“All this stuff to me is, I want to say it’s a bunch of baloney, but it’s a partial bunch of baloney,” he said.
