It has just been reported that former Dallas Cowboy and long-time sports announcer Don Meredith has died of a brain hemorrhage. He was 72.
Meredith played quarterback for the Cowboys from 1960 to 1968.
That was before my time, but I remember him for his work as a sportscaster, most notably for Monday Night Football from 1977 to 1984. MNF has never been as good as it was with Meredith and Howard Cosell.
Meredith’s wife, Susan, and his daughter were at his side in Santa Fe when he died.
Turn off the lights, Dandy Don.
