Pat Summerall dies at age 82
SportsdayDFWcom

Employing a signature succinct staccato style that was brief and to the point, Pat Summerall grew into the pre-eminent network NFL voice for a generation of television viewers. Summerall has died at age 82.
He worked a record 16 Super Bowls on network television, the first five as an analyst. He worked for CBS from 1961 to 1993. He moved with the NFL from CBS to Fox in 1994. He retired after the 2002 season.
Summerall worked his final Super Bowl in February 2002. It was his eighth alongside analyst John Madden. They worked together at CBS and Fox for 21 seasons. Their work at Super Bowl XVI in 1982 remains the highest-rated sports program of all-time, with more than 49 percent of the nation tuned in.
Summerall was a regular-season Sunday staple in most Dallas-Fort Worth homes during the 1990s. He and Madden were regularly assigned to the NFL's No. 1 television attraction, the Cowboys. Not a bad deal for Summerall, who lived barely 20 minutes away from Texas Stadium in Southlake, with his second wife, Cheri.

Always enjoyed him as an announcer. And, am old enough, as a kid, to remember him booting for the New York Football Giants.
Never, ever criticize someone until you have walked a mile in their shoes........for at that point they will be a mile away. And you'll have their shoes !

Lots of good memories! Sad day indeed!

And when someone breaks our wings, we simply continue to fly...
Usually on a broomstick but we're flexible like that
