RIP, Jim McKay 1921-2008

The sports world lost one of its luminaries this week when Jim McKay, longtime ABC sportscaster, passed away. I always remember his lines from the Wide World of Sports that I watched a lot when I was a kid and he carried himself with more composure than most men could hope for when he covered the 1972 tragedy at the Munich Olympics. He hadn’t been doing much in recent years but his voice and spirit will live on in those who learned about sports by the sound of his voice.
