Legendary Sportscaster Curt Gowdy Died

The man who was the most prominet voice in sports broadcasting for many years died today.  Curt Gowdy was known as the voice for all seasons. If it was a big sporting event, Gowdy called it. 16 World Series, 9 Super Bowls, 24 Final Fours, 8 Olympics. When Joe Namath's New York Jets upset the heavily favored Colts in Super Bowl III, Gowdy called it.  When Ted Williams homered in his last at bat, Gowdy called it.  When Hank Aaron hit home run number 715, Gowdy called it. His favorite sports to call? Baseball fit his folksy, relaxed style. As did hunting and fishing.  For 20 years he represented the American Sportsman. Curt Gowdy died from leukemia. He was 86.
