For over 30 years, the legendary sports journalist Howard Cosell pulled no punches. Cosell said of himself, "Arrogant, pompous, obnoxious, vain, cruel, verbose, a showoff. There's no question that I'm all of those things." His blustery, cocksure personality ensured that this larger-than-life sports commentator remains as well known today as any of the athletes he covered. Sports fans of all ages will recognize Cosell's famous voice as he chronicles the history of Monday Night Football and the jocks he shared the booth with, his co-commentators Frank Gifford, Don Meredith, and OJ Simpson.
