As a syrup-sucking icehole—which is what Colbert calls us Canadians—I can only hope the SI cover jinx hits him and not the members of the U.S. speedskating team. These athletes have been training for the upcoming Olympics and deserve to be able to take their best shot.

Ben Reiter's article (Smooth Transition, Dec. 21) was right on. Replacing a legend like John Madden would seem to be a career-ender, but Cris Collinsworth has made Sunday Night Football the best NFL show on TV. It's very apparent that Collinsworth does his homework.

I often muted the sound when watching a John Madden--announced game; I found his constant chatter distracting. Collinsworth's respectful silence after the Colts' touchdown against the Patriots let the viewers experience their own personal joy or anguish. Allowing us to do that is why he will be the next legend.

Your piece on Collinsworth was excellent, but you failed to note his outstanding work during the Beijing Olympics.
