Everyone already knows that the Super Bowl is a pretty big deal, and that’s putting it mildly. If we put aside the battling teams, the awesome players, the dazzling cheerleaders, the genius coaches, and the loyal fans, we’re left with one rather important component, the broadcasters. It may sound lame but often times, they can be the heart and the soul of the game. As they comment on each play by play, scrutinizing every detail as it happens, it’s an important piece of the puzzle. As such, we’ve decided to compile a list of not just the greatest broadcasters, but also the ones with the most dough – just take a look.
