Damn and he was a good one.

Collingsworth has a really long neck. I keep watching it hoping it will extend and he’ll blurt out “ET phone Home.”

Sad about Jackson. He was one of the greats.

This.

Guy was beloved. Great announcer. Sad to see the legends keep fading away.

Not an ounce of bias in his calls, either. Will be missed.

Cool story, bro: First paper I worked at as a sportswriter, they had a phone-in line to get sports scores (this was pre-Internet days, kids). One of us scribes had to periodically update it during our shifts, meaning we had to go to a table with a phone and tape recorder on it and read off the scores into the receiver.

Well, one night I was bored so I decided to record the scores in Keith Jackson's voice, with all his catchphrases and stuff like "Auburn got flattened like a possum on a cold, dark Georgia highway." Cracked everyone up. Had folks from other departments walking over saying, What the hell was that?

He was a hell of an investigative reporter too. My favorite is when he exposed the Super Bowl 4 Chiefs for using performance-enhancing drugs. The Chiefs had access to a performance-enhancing drug called Gatorade that the other team did not and it was not sanctioned by the NFL.

There's a growing talent gap at this job.

Where is the next Al Michaels, Dick Enberg or Keith Jackson? Even Mike Patrick is a fucking legend compared to what's being trotted out there now. I used to love his SNF broadcasts.

I don't hear anyone like that on TV these days under the age of 40. Or hell, 50.

I mean did anyone hear the dipshit on MNF's voice cracking? Terrible.

Tough times for old broadcasters lately. :shake:

Amplify, clarify and don't intrude.

RIP, you were a great one.

Too bad he couldn't live to be 213 years old so he could see the Chiefs finally win a playoff game.
