Just saw Rich Eisen on NFL network about break down to tears making the announcement, kinda choked me up a little too.

Me too, it was very sad indeed.
Hearing that God-like voice of John Facenda while watching Roger Staubach, Joe Namath, John Brodie and Fran Tarkenton will always be great memories. Thank you Ed and Steve Sabol. Big loss for the NFL fans the world over.

RIP Steve. A true Pioneer. I say that both as an NFL fan and a film enthusiast.
