Default Pat Summerall, RIP

Dead at age 82.

Thank you for all the great calls and memories you helped create for a lifelong football/sports fan.

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.

Sorry to hear this. IIRC Pat overcame alcoholism too which could have killed him at a much earlier age, but he triumphed over that addiction, RIP Pat.

I loved listening to Pat and Madden even when they were past their prime, they were a link to my youth that I never tired of.

RIP

yeah he was the perfect antidote for having madden. He rarely did broncos games because he mostly called the NFC games.

RIP Pat. I'm gonna go to happy hour here in San Diego and have one for you. He called the second superbowl victory for us here and I liked him with Madden a lot.

We all will die someday. Hard to imagine what that day will be like. The moment where you're still alive but you know it's only for a few more moments as you slip away, provided you are not killed instantly by something.

RIP Pat. They seriously need to have every NFL broadcasting team (sans Collinsworth and Al Michaels) listen to about 12 hours of your tape from the 80's to see how a game should be called.

RIP Pat. I really enjoyed his work and I actually associate him with 90s Madden even more than Madden.

I like how, in his bio, it says he played for Arkansas - defensive end, offensive end, and kicker. Different game back then.
