CBS football announcer, Tom Brookshire is remembered for one of the most-famous Super-Bowl interviews.  The 1972 Super Bowl ended with a 24-3 win by the Dallas Cowboys over the Miami Dolphins.  Tom Brookshire proceeded to interview star running back, Duane Thomas, of the Cowboys.  Thomas had not spoken to the media the entire week leading up to the big game; yet based on his performance, he was voted the game’s Most Valuable Player.  Brookshire spent several minutes praising Thomas about his performance during the game and marveling at Duane’s speed and quickness.  Finally, Brookshire asked Thomas his first question, “Are you that fast?”  Thomas answered, “Evidently.”  Dead air followed as Brookshire stood stunned by the one-word answer.  It may have been the shortest interview ever seen or heard on sports television.
