Gus Johnson, who debuted as the play-by-play announcer on the Madden NFL series last year, is out as an NFL commentator at CBS, meaning the enthusiastic boothman will be working NFL games only virtually in the upcoming season.
"Gus," I say, "tell me how you feel about the term ‘apeshit.'"
In a madcap dash covering the last seconds of 2009's first Sunday of football, the Denver Broncos won their game, Gus Johnson lost his mind, and Madden NFL 11 found its voice.
Gus Johnson's unpredictable intensity has made him an ironic favorite of many. The CBS broadcaster has done some voice over work for a Madden video, raising hopes we'll hear him losing his shit as the game's new play-by-play man.
