Al Michaels Used To Defend Criminal Scumbags In Hawaii

Every so often, people find things on the internet that pretty much comes out of left field. This would be one of those things.

While sports announcer Al Michaels has had a very illustrious career, including making the "Miracle On Ice" call and working with John Madden, he was also apparently an off-and-on actor during his early days in announcing.

In the late '60s and early '70s, Michaels was broadcasting games for the Hawaiian Islanders, the Triple-A affiliate of the San Diego Padres, as well as football and basketball games for the University of Hawaii. And, in 1970, he appeared in an episode - entitled Run, Johnny, Run -of the hit TV show Hawaii Five-O, which is featured above (courtesy of Awful Announcing). Michaels plays a lawyer sent in to potentially defend some guy who apparently killed a man in self-defense.

Michaels gives a Clint Eastwood-esque performance (well, not really) in trying to get the man to recall what happened, and that's about it. This of course led to him appearing in other great horrible shows and films, such as BASEketball.

By the way, a fun fact about this episode is that a very young Christopher Walken appeared in it as well.

Al Michaels and Christopher Walken on the same set? Man, if only Walken had decided to join Michaels in broadcasting....

Wonderfully passionate post. Obama needs to man-up and fight these America-Hating Republicans, for if he doesn't he's a one termer. LED bulb

I had no idea that back then Michaels was broadcasting games for the Hawaiian Islanders and there is a lot of information here that is new to me. It reminded me how fun it was to eat stakes cooked on the george foreman grills while watching sport games and I have to say that it's another good reason for me that I found this cool website that has a wonderful community and content.
