Sports Caster Traded for Cartoon Rabbit

Poor Al Michaels!  It really has to be a blow to the self-esteem to be traded off for a cartoon rabbit created back in 1920’s.  The popular sports caster was traded to ESPN for a rather obscure cartoon rabbit, “Oswald the Lucky Rabbit”, who was created by Walt Disney before he created Mickey Mouse.  The other items included in the trade were the rights to air some Olympic highlights as well as a few rounds of golf. 

Boy, that sure tells you where he rates in the scheme of things…
