78-year-old veteran announced Al Michaels had a pretty glaring mix-up while calling the Eagles’ game.

Michaels, who has been calling games for over 50 years, apparently thought the Eagles still play at Veterans Stadium.

After returning from halftime during the Eagles-Vikings Thursday Night Football game in Philadelphia, Michaels referred to Lincoln Financial Field as “Veterans Stadium.”

Unfortunately for Michaels, the Eagles haven’t played at Veterans Stadium since 2003, which was demolished in 2004.

What makes the mix-up even worse is that Michaels called the Eagles first game at Lincoln Financial Field.

Fans are now calling on Michaels to retire after his mistake.
