Oh man..... RIP Mr. Sumerall, you will be missed and I can say it was a pleasure for me, listening to you and John call football games every Sunday....
Sad news. Loved his minimalist style of play calling, which seems long gone today.
A typically spare Summerall play call:
"Montana... to Rice... Touchdown, 49ers."
RIP Mr. Summerall, the only man who could make having to listen to John Madden bearable.
When Summerall left the booth NFL games were not the same. Nobody could ever come close to the soothing tones of Pat Summerall. He made the game entertaining even when the game itself sucked.
My mother and grandmother(and I am sure many others) learned how to watch and understand football from both him and Madden.
And you are right-Summerall and Madden were and will always be the best tandem in pro sports history.
This is sad. He was a great broadcaster, a legend.
Sumerall was always a pleasure to listen to when he commentated a sporting event. I remember no only for football, but for golf as well. His minimal style and quiet tone was a perfect fit for golf. He was also a kind man who did a lot for charity in the Dallas area.
