Kevin Harlan is the best play-by-play broadcaster in sports. Joe Buck dreams of the day he calls a game like Harlan. But the former Minnesota Timberwolves announcer is at his best when forced to navigate an unscripted detour… like a streaker running onto the field during the Super Bowl.
Well, lucky for everyone who clicked into this blog or was listening to “The Big Game” on the radio, that’s exactly what happened on Sunday night when the Kansas City Chiefs were getting stomped by Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Bucs.
Kevin Harland is such a legend.

On TV, nobody got to see the Super Bowl streaker. Instead, we got 30 seconds of Tom Brady watching the half naked man run toward the end zone. Having Kevin Harlan narrate after-the-fact is a worthy consolation.
