DON'T CRY, NO TEARS, FOR GIFFORD: HE SAYS GOODBYE ON ABC
Published February 2, 1998
ABC's Al Michaels and Dan Dierdorf paid tribute to Frank Gifford during halftime of the Pro Bowl last night, Gifford's final in-booth broadcast before moving to the "MNF" pregame show. Gifford: "This is not a sad day or a down day in the Gifford house. We have thought about this day for many years. ... The number that sticks out to me is 600. 600 games, but that means 1200 airplanes, 100 hotels, 100 different cities. I've just about had it with that. ... I'm glad I'm finally off the road" ("Pro Bowl," ABC, 2/1).
