You have to make that stand out from the rest of the three hours. There are times when I'm having fun and being loose, and there are times when I'm ultra serious - calling the Giants/Patriots in the Super Bowl is a lot different than calling the Giants/Cubs game last Saturday.

There's no such thing as individual isolated success in football. You can see it in basketball, Lebron takes the ball off one rim, he dunks it on the other, he does it all by himself. You see it in baseball, Aaron Judge snaps that home all by himself. And golf, Tiger drops that putty, does it all by himself. In football, you don't do anything all by yourself. It's always about the man next to me.
