Not many people are fond of the announcers who call the Thursday night games on the NFL Network.

If you happened to be watching Thursday night’s Jets-Bengals game while surfing your Twitter account, it was hard to avoid the insults and taunting aimed at color analysts Joe Theismann and Matt Millen.

But there was a nice moment midway through the game when, rolling one of the always inspiring holiday greetings where a screen full of military men and women seated at a table in some far-away location (Afghanistan, for instance) wish us a Happy Thanksgiving, one of the men said hi to his father.

It was Marcus Millen, Matt’s son who’s a lieutenant in the 10th Mountain Division and is stationed in Fob Shank, Afghanistan. No matter what you think about Millen’s past as the Lions president or what you think about his credibility now that he’s an analyst, this was a really cool moment. And Millen had a tough time keeping his composure.

Check out the video below to see it (and to see Matt Millen’s reaction):



No matter what you think about Millen’s talent, the video is compelling, because, at the very least, it shows he is a concerned father.
