Stone Faced

Barry Horn interviewed legendary broadcaster Pat Summerall, who described his assignment during his playing days to try to steal signals from an opposing team:

When he was playing for the New York Giants, he was once assigned to keep a keen eye on the coach across the field and try to steal some signals. Summerall was dogged in pursuit of purloined information. He requisitioned a pair of binoculars and never took his eyes off Tom Landry.

Did he learn much that day?

"Not really," Summerall said. "Tom's face never changed."
