Westwood One Sports Aboard the USS America

Eric Dickerson, Jim Gray
As part of tonight’s Westwood One Monday Night Football broadcast of the Carolina Panthers/Philadelphia Eagles game, pregame and halftime host Jim Gray broadcast live from aboard the brand new naval ship USS America, stationed in San Diego Harbor.  Gray was joined on the ship by Pro Football Hall of Famer Eric Dickerson.

In honor of Veterans Day, they mingled with the sailors and fielded football questions for Dickerson and Monday Night Football weekly contributors Tom Brady and Larry Fitzgerald.

USS America (LHA 6) is the first ship of the America-class amphibious assault ship class and the fourth ship to bear the name America.  Commissioned on October 11, 2014, the ship acts as the flagship on an expeditionary strike group or amphibious ready group.   America is homeported in San Diego, California.

During the Q&A, Petty Officer Santiago asked Brady which Manning brother he likes the least:
