THE MYBOYSAY NETWORK UNDERSTANDS THAT IN TODAYS SOCIETY WHERE THE WORK SCHEDULES ARE INCREASINGLY INTERFERING WITH NORMAL HOLIDAY TRAVEL, ”DUE TO REQUIRED WEEKEND SCHEDULING BY MOST EMPLOYERS”, AND “STAGGERED SCHEDULING”, BY EMPLOYERS TO COVER THE 24 HOUR BUSINESS CYCLES THAT ACCOMODATE THEIR CONSUMER DEMANDS, FAMILY MEMBERS AREN’T ABLE TO CELEBRATE THE ACTUAL “MOTHERS DAY” WITH THEIR MOTHERS. AS A RESULT OF THESE EXISTING OPPORTUNITIES, WE AT THE MYBOYSAY SPORTS MEDIA GROUP ARE WISHING FOR SAFE TRAVEL, AND ALSO, HOPING THAT ALL MOTHERS SEE THEIR ENTIRE FAMILIES DURING THE NEXT TWO WEEKENDS.

George Allen “Pat” Summerall (May 10, 1930 – April 16, 2013) was an American football player and television sportscaster, having worked at CBS, Fox, and ESPN.
Summerall spent ten years as a professional football player in the National Football League, primarily as a placekicker. The Detroit Lions drafted Summerall as a fourth-round draft choice in the 1952 NFL Draft. Summerall played the pre-season with the Lions before breaking his arm, which ended the year for him. After that season, he was traded and went on to play for the Chicago Cardinals from 1953 to 1957 and the New York Giants from 1958 to 1961, during which he was a part of The Greatest Game Ever Played. His best professional year statistically was 1959, when Summerall scored 90 points on 30-for-30 (100%) extra-point kicking and 20-for-29 (69%) field goal kicking.
Summerall’s most memorable professional moment may well have been at the very end of the Sunday, December 14, 1958 regular season finale between his Giants and the Cleveland Browns at Yankee Stadium. Going into the game, the Browns were in first place in the Eastern Conference, holding a one-game lead over the second-place Giants. In that era, there was no overtime during regular season games, standings ties were broken by a playoff, and there were no wild-card teams. This meant that only the Eastern Conference champion would qualify for the NFL Championship Game to be held two weeks later, and it meant that the Giants had to win just to force a tiebreaker playoff game. The Browns, on the other hand, needed only a tie to clinch the Eastern championship. As time was running out, the Giants and Browns were tied, 10-10, a situation that, as indicated, favored the Browns. The Giants got barely into Cleveland territory, and then sent out Summerall to try for a tiebreaking 49-yard field goal. To add to the drama, there were swirling winds and snow. Summerall, a straight-ahead kicker, made the field goal with just two minutes to play, keeping the Giants alive for another week, they defeated Cleveland a week later, 10-0, in the Eastern Conference tiebreaker.
Summerall’s last professional game was the December 31, 1961 NFL Championship Game held at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Vince Lombardi’s Green Bay Packers defeated Summerall’s Giants, 37-0, holding New York to just six first downs. Summerall was not a factor in that game.
After retiring from football, Summerall was hired by CBS Sports in 1962 to work as a color commentated on the network’s NFL coverage. CBS initially paired Summerall with Chris Schenkel on Giants games; three years later he shifted to working with Jim Gibbons on Washington Redskins games. In 1968, after CBS abandoned the practice of assigning dedicated announcing crews to particular NFL teams, Summerall ascended to the network’s lead national crew, pairing with Jack Buck and then Ray Scott.
Summerall also covered other events such as ABA basketball for CBS during this period, and through 1966 hosted a morning drive-time music/talk program for WCBS-AM radio in New York. In 1969, Summerall took part in NBC’s coverage of Super Bowl III. He also co-hosted the syndicated NFL Films series This Week in Pro Football in the late 1960s and early ’70s.
Midway through the 1974 NFL season, CBS shifted Summerall from color to play-by-play. The network’s #1 NFL crew now consisted of Summerall and analyst Tom Brookshier (with whom he had previously worked on This Week in Pro Football), and the colorful Summerall-Brookshier duo worked three Super Bowls (X, XII, and XIV) together. Summerall, Brookshier, NFL on CBS producer Bob Wussler, and Miami Dolphins owner Joe Robbie appeared as themselves during the 1977 film Black Sunday, which was filmed on location at the Orange Bowl in Miami during Super Bowl X.
In 1981, Summerall was teamed with former Oakland Raiders coach John Madden, a pairing that would last for 22 seasons on two networks and become one of the most well-known partnerships in TV sportscasting history. Summerall and Madden were first teamed on a November 25, 1079 broadcast of a Minnesota Vikings–Tampa Bay Buccaneers game. While the two were paired on CBS, they called Super Bowls XVI, XVIII, XXI, XXIV, and XXVI together.
Summerall also broadcast PGA Tour matches on CBS, including The Masters Tournament, as well as the US Open of tennis, during his tenure at CBS, and he was the play-by-play announcer for the 1974 NBA Finals, CBS’ first season broadcasting the NBA on CBS.
Pat Summerall, “The Greatest Sports Voice In History”, died on April 16, 2013 of cardiac arrest Zale Lipshy University Hospital in Dallas, at the age of 82.
THE MYBOYSAY NATION SPORTS ENTHUSIASTS WOULD LIKE TO SAY, THANK YOU TO PAT SUMMERALL FOR ALL OF THE GREAT PLAY BY PLAY DIRECTIVES THAT WERE GIVEN TO THE WORLD OF SPORTS DURING HIS GREAT CAREER.
NCAA BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT UPDATE: WELL, WELL, WELL, WE NOW FINALLY HAVE A FINAL FOUR CAST OF TEAMS THAT HAVE RISEN FROM THE BEST BASKETBALL SQUADS IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, AND THEY ARE: LOUISVILLE, MICHIGAN, SYRACUSE, AND WICHITA STATE.
WELL, NEEDLESS TO SAY, NO ONE IN THE WORLD PICKED THIS FINAL FOUR CAST OF CHARACTERS TO BE IN THE FINAL FOUR BRACKET THAT COUNTS AT THE END OF THE TOURNAMENT. NOW, THERE WERE PROBABLY PEOPLE, MAYBE HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE WHO HAD BRACKETS THAT COULD HAVE INCLUDED ONE OF THE ABOVE TEAMS, MAYBE 2 OF THE ABOVE TEAMS, MAYBE EVEN THREE OF THE ABOVE TEAMS, BUT NO ONE IN THIS YEARS BRACKET ENTRIES, REGARDLESS OF WHAT BRACKET YOU PARTICIPATED IN, WAS ABLE TO GET ALL FOUR OF THE WINNING TEAMS GOING INTO THE FINAL FOUR WEEKEND, “CORRECT”. THIS YEARS TOURNAMENT WAS VERY ENTERTAINING WITH SOME OF THE BIGGEST FIRST ROUND UPSETS TO HAPPEN IN RECENT HISTORY, WHICH INCLUDED A POWERFUL GEORGETOWN TEAM THAT REALLY TURNED THEIR TEAM AROUND IN THE SECOND HALF OF THE 2013 COLLEGE BASKETBALL SEASON. DURING THE COURSE OF THE NCAA TOURNAMENT, THERE WERE MANY MORE TEAMS THAT WERE EXPECTED TO GO FURTHER THAT JUST DIDN’T MEET THE EXPECTATIONS THAT THEIR MANY FANS, JOUNALISTS, EXPERTS, AND LAS VEGAS HAD PRESENTED THEM.
BUT NOW WE HAVE FOUR, AND WE’VE GOT TO CHOSE TWO OF THOSE FOUR TO REACH THE FINAL, THEN WE’VE GOT TO CHOOSE ONE OF THOSE TWO IN THE FINAL TO BE THE PROJECTED WINNER. BASED ON ALL THINGS GIVEN THAT HAS TAKEN PLACE IN THIS YEARS TOURNAMENT, IT WOULD BE FOLLISH NOT TO FACTOR IN THE WEAKEST LINK, WICHITA STATE, BECAUSE THESE UNHERALDED TEAMS APPEARED TO BE MORE PREPARED THAN THEIR COUNTERPARTS AT EVERY CONTEST IN THE 2013 NCAA BASKETBALL EVENTS. SO WITH THAT SAID, HERE GOES THE PICKS…..
MICHIGAN VS SYRACUSE= MICHIGAN WINS THAT CONTEST.
LOUISVILLE VS WICHITA STATE= WICHITA STATE UPSETS LOUISVILLE TO GET TO THE FINALS.
MICHIGAN VS WICHITA STATE= MICHIGAN WINS THE 2013 NCAA BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT
THE MYBOYSAY NATIONS COLLEGE BASKETBALL ENTHUSIASTS WOULD LIKE TO CONGRATULATE ALL OF THE PARTICIPANTS IN THIS YEARS NCAA TOURNAMENT, AND ALSO WOULD LIKE TO CONGRATULATE THE FINAL FOUR TEAMS ON THERE GREAT ACCOMPLISHMENT. GOOD LUCK TO ALL FOUR, AND WE’LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS.Read More
THE MYBOYSAY SPORTS BLOG, AND MBS MEDIA NETWORK, WOULD LIKE TO WISH EVERYONE WHO CELEBRATES THIS HOLIDAY, A HAPPY EASTERRead More
SERENA WILLIAMS, THE NUMBER ONE RANKED TENNIS PLAYER IN THE WORLD, WINS THE SONY OPEN IN MIAMI FLORIDA FOR THE SIXTH TIME, BREAKS STEFFI GRAFS 5 TIME TOURNAMENT RECORD, WINNING FOR THE 6TH TIME AT THE EVENT
CO-CAPTAIN OF THE “WILLIAMS SISTERS DYNASTY”, “SERENA WILLIAMS”, HAS SURPASED ONE OF THE WORLDS GREATEST FEMALE TENNIS PLAYERS OF ALL TIME, “STEFFI GRAF”, IN WINS AT THE SONY OPEN TOURNAMENT LOCATED IN KEY BISCAYNE, FLORIDA BY COMPLETELY DOMINATING THE NUMBER 2 PLAYER IN THE WORLD, MARIA SHARAPOVA, (4-6) (6-3) (6-0), AND HAS CONTINUED THIS DOMINATION OF MARIA SHARAPOVA BY ELIMINATING HER FROM THE PAST 11 STRAIGHT SONY TOURNAMENTS OVER THE PAST YEARS OF THEIR MEETINGS IN THIS GREAT ENVIROMENT OF CHAMPIONSHIP COMPETITION. BY SURPASING STEFFI GRAFF IN WINS, THIS ELEVATES SERENA WILLIAMS INTO THE ELITE TENNIS STATUS OF HER CRAFT, AS A RESULT OF THE STATURE THAT GRAFF HAS BEEN IN OVER THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS AFTER HER RETIREMENT. ALSO, AT THE AGE OF 31, SERENA WILLIAMS BECOMES THE OLDEST LADY IN WOMENS TENNIS TO BE RANKED AS NUMBER 1 IN THE WORLD, AND THAT’S MONUMENTAL WITH ALL OF THE GREATS THAT HAVE PLAYED THE GAME, AND WERE NOT ABLE TO MAINTAIN THE LEVEL OF TENNIS DOMINANCE THAT SERENA WILLIAMS HAS DISPLAYED DURING HER ENTIRE CAREER. IT ALSO LOOKS AS IF SHE’LL BE WINNING SEVERAL MORE MAJOR TOURNAMENTS AND A SLAM OR TWO PRIOR TO HER DECISION TO RETIRE FROM THE SPORT.
THE MYBOYSAY NATIONS TENNIS ENTHUSIASTS WOULD LIKE TO CONGRATULATE SERENA WILLIAMS ON HER VICTORY AT THE SONY OPEN, AND WISHES SERENA A HEALTHY CAREER GOING FORWARD.Read More
THE DALLAS COWBOYS HAVE MADE THEIR WORST PERSONNEL INVESTMENT IN DALLAS COWBOYS HISTORY, “THAT’S RIGHT”, SINCE THEIR EXISTENCE IN THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE. ON THE OTHER HAND, THE COWBOYS, TONY ROMO, JUST GOT HIS ENTIRE GOLF CAREER FINANCED BY JERRY JONES, THE OWNER OF THE DALLAS COWBOYS, WHICH SAVES NIKE AND THE REST OF THE SPORTS ENDORSEMENT COMPANIES MILLIONS, GOING FORWARD.
THE DALLAS COWBOYS QUARTERBACK IS MUCH BETTER AT GOLF, AND THE COWBOYS MUST BE VERY HAPPY ABOUT IT, BECAUSE THEY JUST FINANCED THIS GUYS PGA GOLF CAREER WITH AN 108 MILLION DOLLAR CONTRACT EXTENTION TO SHOW THEIR APPRECIATION FOR THE TOP FINISHES HE’S HAD ON THE PRO-AM GOLF TOUR OUTINGS. NOW, IF JERRY JONES, AND HIS TEAM OF EXPERTS ANALYSE HIS QUARTERBACKS CONTRIBUTIONS ON THE FIELD, AS IT APPLIES TO WINNING CHAMPIONSHIPS, OR JUST FOR WINNING ANYTHING, JERRY PROBABLY WOULDN’T BE WRITING ANY TYPE OF CHECKS TO TONY ROMO. IF JERRY JONES WAS IN HIS RIGHT MIND, HE WOULD HAVE BROUGHT A REAL TALENTED QUARTERBACK IN TO COMPETE FOR THE STARTING POSITION, AND IF HE WON THE COMPETITION AGAINST ROMO IN THE PRE-SEASON, TONY ROMO WOULD BE TRADED FOR DRAFT PICKS, CASH, AND FUTURE CONSIDERATIONS TO THE TEAM OF HIS CHOSING, IF HE’S NEARLY AS GOOD AS JERRY JONES AND ALSO, ALL OF THESE NFL COMMENTATORS SAY HE IS, AFTER EVERY GAME THAT THIS GUY HAS PLAYED IN HIF NFL CAREER. AFTER EVERY LOSS, IT’S ALWAYS EVERYBODYS FAULT, BUT NOT TONY ROMO’S, AND THAT’S EVERY WEEK THIS GUY GETS UNDER CENTER TO PARADE AS AN NFL QUARTERBACK. IT’S REALLY A SAD COMMENTARY FOR THE DALLAS COWBOYS, THE FANS, THE PLAYERS, AND ALSO, JERRY’S COWBOYS VALUATION. THE DALLAS COWBOYS AT ONE TIME WAS THE WEALTHIEST SPORTS FRANCHISE IN THE CONTINENTAL UNITED STATES, AND NOW WITH ALL OF THESE LOSING SEASONS, THE NEW YORK YANKEES BASEBALL FRANCHISE HAS REMOVED AMERICAS TEAM, THE TONY ROMO-LEAD DALLAS COWBOYS FROM THE TOP SPOT IN THE FORBES SPORTS VALUATION PROCESS. JERRY, YOUR LOSING MONEY WITH THIS GUY, AND THAT’S A BIT UNUSUAL FOR A GUY LIKE YOURSELF WHO TAKES PRIDE IN WINNING AT ALL COST. ROMO IS A JOKE, AND 20% OF HIS YARDS AS A PASSER HAVE COME IN GARBAGE TIME, AFTER THE DALLAS COWBOYS HAVE FALLEN BEHIND BY 3 OR 4 TOUCHDOWNS AND A COUPLE OF FIELD GOALS, WITH 5 MINUTES LEFT IN THE GAME, AND THAT’S WHEN YOU GOT ROMO RUNNING THIS 2 MINUTE OFFENSE, THAT LASTS 5 MINUTES, THROWING 3,4, AND 5 YARD PASSES EVERY THREE DOWNS TO SCORE A TOUCHDOWN THAT DOESN’T EVEN MATTER.
JERRY, GET A REAL QUARTERBACK, GET A REAL BACK-UP QUARTERBACK, AND MAYBE, TAKE A LOOK AROUND AND SEE IF YOU CAN FIND YOU A REAL HEAD COACH THAT CAN MANAGE A FOOTBALL GAME.
MYBOYSAY NATION’S NFL ENTHUSIASTS, DO YOU FEEL THE DALLAS COWBOYS WILL MAKE THE 2013 PLAYOFFS? DO YOU FEEL THAT THE COWBOYS HAVE MADE THE BEST CHOICE IN KEEPING TONY ROMO? DO YOU THINK THAT TONY ROMO SHOULD BE TRADED? DO YOU FEEL THAT TONY ROMO SHOULD HAVE BEEN CUT? PLEASE TELL THE WORLD HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT THESE COWBOYS AND WHERE THEY WILL BE AT THE END OF THE 2013 FOOTBALL SEASON.
THE CHICAGO BULLS HAVE STOPPED THE MIAMI HEAT WITH A DOMINATING WIN ON THEIR HOME COURT, ENDS THE 27 GAME WINNING STREAK, AND YES, SHUTS DOWN THE HEAT WITH THE 101-97 VICTORY
THE CHICAGO BULLS STOPS THE MOMENTUM, HALTS THE GREAT STREAK, BRINGS DOWN THE MIAMI HEAT WITH SPECTACULAR DEFENSE DURING THE WHOLE GAME. THE BULLS BELIEVED THAT THEY WOULD BE THE TEAM TO GET IT DONE, AND THEY GOT THE JOB DONE IN GRAND STYLE. THEY PLAYED LEBRON JAMES THE WAY HE SHOULD BE PLAYED EVERY NIGHT, AND THAT MEANS IF YOU COME INTO THE PAINT, YOU WILL BE DENIED AT EVERY ATTEMPT. LEBRON JAMES HAS BEEN GIVEN THE GREEN LIGHT TO JUST EXPLOIT TEAMS IN THE PAINT EVERY NIGHT, BUT TONIGHT THE CHICAGO BULLS SENT A MESSAGE THAT IT WON’T HAPPEN IN THEIR HOUSE, AND THEY MEANT BUSINESS. MAYBE THE OTHER NBA TEAMS WILL TAKE NOTE AND PLAY THIS GUY HARD EVERY NIGHT, AND AT THE END OF THE DAY, THE SPORTS WORLD WILL SEE JUST WHAT HE’S MADE OF. RIGHT NOW IS NOT THE TIME TO CROWN JAMES AS THE GREATEST IN HIS ERA, BECAUSE “KOBE BRYANT” IS STILL PLAYING, AND IS PLAYING QUITE WELL. KOBE HAS BEEN THROUGH THE WARS LIKE ALL OF THE GREAT PLAYERS OF THE PAST, AND HAS WON THE CHAMPIONSHIPS WITH HIS DOMINANCE, AND WITHOUT COMPLAINT OF TEAM FOULING HIM ON PURPOSE, HANGING ON HIM ALL THE TIME, NOT GETTING CALLS WHENEVER HE’S BEEN TOUCHED,AND ALSO, UNTIL LEBRON JAMES CAN WIN A NBA CHAMPIONSHIP IN A FULL NBA SEASON WITH THE NBA TEAMS PLAYING HIM THE WAY THE BULLS PLAYED HIM TONIGHT, LEBRON WILL BE KNOWN AS A VERY GOOD PLAYER THAT WAS A PART OF THE NBA.
AFTER ALL, IS LEBRON JAMES REALLY BETTER THAN THE “MAILMAN”, KARL MALONE? REMEMBER THAT GUY? ONE OF THE GREATEST SPECIMENS TO PLAY THE GAME!!!!! YES, IF THE MYBOYSAY NATION WAS PICKING A SQUAD, AND HAD A CHOICE BETWEEN THE MAILMAN, AND LEBRON, IT WOULD NOT EVEN BE A CONTEST, AS THE MAILMAN, AND MANY MORE PLAYERS, PRIOR TO LEBRON JAMES ENTRANCE INTO THE NBA, WOULD BE TAKEN AHEAD OF LEBRON, AND THAT’S A FACT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! JUST DO YOUR RESEARCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
