Legendary NFL announcer Al Michaels made a puzzling confession before Amazon Prime Video’s Thursday Night Football game.
A snippet of Michaels’ appearance in an interview with CNN’s Chris Wallace went viral before Thursday’s Washington Commanders-Chicago Bears game.
Michaels brought his talent to the show Who’s talking to Chris Wallace?which streams on HBO Max on Friday.
The Hall of Famer announcer was featured in a video that continued to circulate Xformerly known as Twitter.
Wallace asked Michaels, “Is it true that you have never knowingly eaten a vegetable in your life?”
Michaels did not deny the fact and explained that he is the son of an 18-year-old mother who is an easygoing mother.
“I was born when my parents were 18 and my mother wasn’t even Dr. at the time. Spock had read,” Michaels said.
“She just let me run the course.
“I always pushed the vegetables away.”
He concluded his argument by confidently proclaiming to Wallace, “And I think what I’ve proven to Chris is that man doesn’t need vegetables to survive.”

Michaels then called a carrot an “offensive vegetable” while explaining his reasoning for the shutdown.
“I just don’t even like the look of it,” said the 78-year-old.
“And I suspect what it might taste like in terms of texture.
“It just doesn’t look like something that would be well received.”
Michaels would appear alongside commentator Kirk Herbstreit on TNF’s Week 5 coverage.
And despite the Bears’ 40-20 victory over the Commanders, Michaels blasted Chicago’s 0-4 start to the season by saying, “When people call you a dumpster fire… that’s not good.”
