Pat Summerall – May 10, 1930 – April 16, 2013

Posted: April 17, 2013 by B in NFL

We’d like to take a minute to remember a legendary announcer – Pat Summerall. The NFL announcer died yesterday at the age of 82. Summerall is best remembered for his prolific announcing style and his partnership with John Madden. In addition to his NFL announcing, Summerall has also called major golf and tennis events. His career included playing football collegiately with the Arkansas Razoerbacks and in the NFL from 1952-1961. Pat Summerall’s death is a true loss to the sports community.

    RIP Pat! The pairing of him and John Madden made listening to commentary a lot more exciting. Now we have to deal with Joe Buck and his pointless conversations with whoever he is paired up with.
