Pat Summerall
Legendary sports broadcaster and former NFL kicker Pat Summerall died today at the age of 82 after a battle with alcoholism and a successful liver transplant.
Summerall, one half of a legendary broadcasting duo, worked 16 Superbowls over a 21-year partnership with John Madden. Madden described Summerall in the last broadcast they did together as “a treasure” and the “spirit of the NFL.”
“You are what the NFL is all about, what pro football is all about, and more important, what a man is all about and what a gentleman is all about,” Madden said.

RIP, Pat.
