If you’ve ever been within earshot of a television that was showing NFL programming, you’ve probably heard the legendary voice of the late, great Pat Summerall.

What you may not have known, is that at one time, Summerall coached actor and legendary mustache owner Burt Reynolds at Florida State University.

During a 1996 blow-out between the Dallas Cowboys and the Miami Dolphins, Summerall and his broadcast  partner John Madden spotted Reynolds in the crowd and Madden asked Summerall if Burt was any good at football.

Here was his response…

You don’t have to bury the man, Pat. At least compliment his lustrous mustache (and his probably horse-hair rug).
