SI: Are you glad you did a stint on Monday Night Football?

Miller: Of course. I was a sports nerd and in the sanctum sanctorum. We did two years, and I was picked up for a third. But when John Madden left Fox, I called Foutsie that morning and said, "Man, we are whacked. The Big Dog is loose on the tundra, and he wants to feed." Madden is the best guy who ever did that job. Al Michaels is the best play-by-play guy. When you've got a chance to put them together and you are looking at a standup comedian who is in the way—guess what? You get whacked. Hey, I'm a big boy. I'm like G. Gordon Liddy. When it's time to take me out, just tell me what corner you want me on. I don't want innocents getting hit in the crossfire.
