Pat Summerall Passes Away

A sad day for fans of the National Football League, as it is being reported that legendary announcer Pat Summerall has passed away at the age of 82.

Summerall had a ten-year career in the National Football League as a place kicker, spending time with the Detroit Lions, the Chicago Cardinals. . .yes, the Chicago Cardinals. . .and the New York Giants. After that, in 1962, he joined CBS to start a broadcasting career that would span four decades.

To many of today's fans, he is best known for the work he did with John Madden, who he was paired with starting in 1981 at CBS. Madden and Summerall called games for CBS until 1993, when FOX outbid CBS for the right to broadcast NFC games, and the two of them moved to FOX, where they broadcast games together until 2002, when Summerall formally left the broadcast booth. He did a few different events after his retirement, but wasn't full-time in the booth after that.

Summerall was in the booth for 16 Super Bowls, far more than any other announcer in the history of the National Football League.

We send our condolences to the family of Pat Summerall during this time.
