Pat Summerall dies at 82
And she would be right. I loved his style and voice. Best announcing voice you could have for an NFL game. Those days with him and Madden were the best as far as I was concerned.
I agree with that. I'm not such a huge Madden fan, but that tandem was fantastic. It's a great example where the total was greater than the sum of its parts, IMO.
The tandem of Summerall and Madden was classic, unfortunately and not to be a:
It sucked that the majority of the games he covered were the Cowgurls.
Nonetheless RIP Pat, you were....... nay are an important piece of Americana!! Again, RIP!
You ARE my hero whenever it comes to iron livers. My liver will never make it to 82 years old!
True, when I hear his voice I think of those Cowboys 3 o'clock games, that Cowboys horn music they always played at Texas Stadium, etc. It seems like in the 90s he was doing all of their games. How many times did we hear him say "Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith, Michael Irvin, etc"?
If the Oilers won I would normally watch those games. If not I typically would not be in the mood to watch a second game, especially the Cowboys.
Not to be missed if you're a Summerall fan...
Looking back at the life and career of Pat Summerall
R.I.P. Pat. Your professionalism (and tact) are sorely missed in this Bob Costas era.
Summerall and Scully = the best. I also like Dick Enberg.
Mr. Summerall you will be missed.
we still have Jim Nance but what a loss & end of golden era when style & substance meant something. RIP Pat
