Merlin Olsen, ex-great of the Los Angeles Rams, on his biggest adjustment as a broadcaster: "The great shock was to move upstairs and look down. I couldn't see anything. It was as if I was watching a game I didn't understand. I had learned to watch the game from ground level. You literally look through people and visualize what is happening. You see the start of some action and it disappears, but you know what is happening on the other side of those bodies."
