RIP Pat Summerall (1 Viewer)

One of my earliest football memories was a show in the sixties with my grandfather that came on before the games I think. Maybe it was the NFL today. It was hosted by Pat Summeral and a dark haired guy. That had to have been nearly 50 years ago. Football won't be the same without Pat. R.I.P

Edit: I think the show was This Week in Pro Football

Did you know his real name was George, but they started calling him Pat because when he kicked it said PAT Summerall?

That was Tom brookshier, his first broadcast partner. They were really good too. Tom was a don merridith type...lots of energy and fun.I am kind of surprised that there have been so few posts in this thread. I would think that the majority of the board members grew up smack dab in the middle of the golden years of pat and John.

I grew up watching NFL football listening to Summerall and Brookshier. Cowboy and Eagle at heart, proper and rough in presentation. Great contradiction that was magnificent in the booth.
 
Awesome broadcaster and also a good player at Arkansas and in the NFL.

Always loved the games he called.
