Sportscasters have a unique knack for being able to make a brilliant observation at the most inappropriate moment. Even after a touchdown or knockout, they'll continue their postgame analysis even if they're reporting on a pickup soccer game on the playground.

Dallas

Larry Christopher Allen Sr. (born November 27, 1971) is an American former professional football player who was a guard in the National Football League (NFL) for 14 seasons. He was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in the second round of the 1994 NFL Draft. He played college football for the Sonoma State Seawolves. At 6 ft 3 in height and weighing 325 pounds, Allen is regarded as one of the physically strongest men to have ever played in the NFL, having recorded an official bench press of 705 lb (320 kg)

An 11-time Pro Bowl selection, Allen played 12 seasons with the Cowboys and earned a Super Bowl ring with the team after a 27–17 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XXX. He played his final two seasons with the San Francisco 49ers before signing a one-day contract with the Dallas Cowboys, allowing him to retire with the organization that drafted him, prior to the 2008 regular season. In his career, he played in more Pro Bowls than any other Dallas Cowboys offensive player in franchise history. On February 2, 2013, Allen was voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
