NFL broadcaster, icon Pat Summerall dies at age 82


Pat Summerall died Tuesday. He was 82. That’s exactly how Summerall once told a writer he would craft the first sentences of his own obituary; short and to the point. He died in his hospital room at Zale Lipshy Hospital where he was recovering from surgery for a broken hip, a family friend confirmed. Summerall worked a record 16 Super Bowls in a network career that began in 1962 and ended in 2002. In the 21 seasons Summerall worked alongside John Madden they grew into America’s most popular sports broadcast team. (Dallas Morning News)
