Broadcast Icon Pat Summerall Passes Away

We enjoyed him and he was a staple for Sunday afternoon prime games, Super Bowls, and NFC Championship games.

Pat Summerall, also known for his voiceovers, passes away at the age of 82.

He also called golf (especially the Masters) and NBA games as well for CBS.

Thoughts and respects?
Nothing but respect for Mr. Summerall. He will be sorely missed.

Been long missed because Joe Buck proved he is just one big homer.
Will miss Mr Summerall. Remember him and Madden. My favorite combo announcers/analysts.
Summerall is enough of a legend to justify two threads, one in the Lot and one in NFL Talk. Goodbye Pat.

I CANNOT stand Joe Buck. Pompous, arrogant, self absorbed bassturd.
I remember growing up in NYC in the 50's and he was playing for the Giants.

Very classy guy - was excellent w/Madden.
Just got home and saw the news of his passing, always surprises me when a giant of the game passes. RIP Mr. Summerall
R.I.P. MR SUMMERALL
RIP Pat Summerall. One of the greatest announcers of all time. Him and Madden were an amazing and classic duo.
I remember this guy calling games when I was younger. Always enjoyed it.

Respect, man.

RIP Pat :(

I've seen threads of the same in different forums that end up being merged.
Great broadcaster, bless his heart for putting up with John Madden.
I'll remember his voice clearly for the rest of my life as he called those great battles between The Niners and Cowboys back in the 90's. Hasnt been the same since, and probably never will be. The team of he and Madden set the bar pretty high.
