Joe Montana - Sunday Night

Joe Montana, selected by the San Francisco 49ers in the third round of the 1979 National Football League Draft, had a stellar career with the 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs. A master of late-game comebacks, Montana directed his teams to 31 fourth quarter come-from-behind wins during his illustrious career, including a 92-yard drive in the closing seconds of Super Bowl XXIII. His uncanny ability to bring a team back from apparent defeat was so common that it simply became referred to as "Montana Magic." A true student of the game, Montana won the NFL's passing title in both 1987 and 1989. He topped the NFC in passing five times (1981, 1984, 1985, 1987, and 1989).

Bob Woodward - Monday Morning

Bob Woodward is a journalist and acclaimed non-fiction author who has worked for The Washington Post since 1971. Woodward was working as a reporter for the paper when he was tipped to a burglary at the Democratic National Committee headquarters at the Watergate complex in Washington, D.C. With fellow journalist Carl Bernstein, Woodward eventually connected the break-in to the highest levels of the Nixon administration. The Washington Post was awarded the 1973 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service for its coverage-one of two Post Pulitzers won through Woodward's contribution-and Woodward and Berstein became synonymous with investigative journalism.
