Bizarre does not begin to describe part of the compensation package that allowed legendary sportscaster Al Michaels to move to ABC/ESPN to NBC for next year's Sunday night football telecasts.

In exchange, NBC gave up, in part, the broadcast rights to a long-forgotten cartoon rabbit named Oswald.  I couldn't have made it up if I tried. :lol:  :lol:

For more details on the transaction and why Michaels decided to switch networks, see this link:
