John Madden Death Meme

Former Yankees pitcher and Raiders fan CC Sabathia stated your legacy would go on in perpetuity. Madden coached the Oakland Raiders from 1969 to 1978, a few years before Sabathia was born in Vallejo, California. LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers said the same thing about Madden's legacy, adding an infinity emoji. Billie Jean King, a former tennis player and social justice crusader, described meeting Madden as a privilege.

He was befuddled by the prospect of managing another minicamp, another round of draft preparation. Lombardi coached for ten years, and Madden would do the same. Madden told The Washington Post in 1984, "You went everywhere but you never saw anything." Everything was an aircraft, a bus, a hotel, a stadium, a bus, an airplane, and then back to the airport. One day I thought to myself, "There has to be more to life than this."

Madden's voice became synonymous with football for many generations after he became a well-known color commentator on NFL broadcasts from 1979 to 2008. Madden, a 16-time Emmy winner, notably called games alongside Pat Summerall and Al Michaels throughout his legendary broadcasting career. He worked 11 Super Bowls as an analyst until his last call in Super Bowl XLIII in April 2009, when he retired.

The NFL world is in mourning tonight as the league confirmed the loss of John Madden, who died Tuesday morning at the age of 85.

Madden, as NFL commissioner Roger Goodell put it, "was football for so much of his life." He was a football player in the National Football League. As an NFL coach, he won a Super Bowl. He was one of the finest broadcasters in NFL history, having called so many huge games. He also became the inspiration for the most popular sports video game of all time.
