(June 5, 2010) --- After eight seasons broadcasting Monday Night Football and the Super Bowl for the Westwood One Radio Network, veteran sportscaster Marv Albert has decided to step down. Citing a desire to cut back his schedule, 68-year old Albert said in a statement that he no longer will be the radio voice for the NFL and will be looking forward to sinking his teeth into something else.

As the voice of the New York Knicks for over 30-years, Albert was known for his popular on-air play-by-play catch-phrases such as “Yesssss!,” “Boom-sha-ka-la-ka!" and “Their defense is tighter than that narrow strip of silk fabric up between my buttocks!”

Although Marv has officially signed-off of the NFL airwaves, Albert’s toupee agreed to stay on with the network for another two-years.

“Now I’ll finally have time to open up that Victoria Secret franchise I’ve always dreamed of.”
