Fox Hires Recently Retired John Lynch

We knew that John Lynch was going to retire today, but we weren't sure what was on the horizon for him.

Apparently, he quickly got a gig with Fox, and will be calling the Vikings-Jaguars game this Sunday. Awful Announcing tells us that he will work with Chris Rose and sideline reporter Krista Voda.

Unless you have DirecTV's Sunday Ticket or are a die-hard Vikings or Jaguars fan who lives in a remote area, you probably won't get to hear Lynch's debut. It's a shame, too, since the Vikings are tied atop the NFC North standings, yet their fans get the new guy.

Fox also put their No. 1 broadcast team of Joe Buck and Troy Aikman on the gripping San Francisco-Dallas game. Good thing there is no Cowboys bias at the network*. After all, Fox is only doing the NY Giants-Arizona and Carolina-Atlanta games. You know, three first place teams and the young, exciting Falcons.

*Yeah, yeah, yeah. I do know that Fox is shacking Buck and Aikman up in Dallas so they won't have to travel to do the Thanksgiving Day game. Still, put your best broadcast team on your best game. It isn't like Phoenix is that far away.
