Dick Enberg...R.I.P.

Recommended Posts

Absolutely stunned by this news. Apparently whatever took his life happened quickly. He was found in his home with his bags packed ready to fly to Boston today. He was 82.

 

The voice of a generation...the Angels, the Rams, UCLA basketball, "The Sports Challenge" TV show, Tennis, the Olympics, the NFL, the Padres, College Basketball.

 

His like will never be seen again.

Not to sound like the old guy who thinks everything new sucks, but as we lose these guys an era in sports is ending. Listening to guys like him, Scully, etc was such a treat. I wish there was more room for a few of those guys instead of the over the top yellers and big time homers.

Now most of the announcers are ex players instead of professional announcers. Sign of the times. I always like Enberg, even though he was a young guy.

Which does offer some better insights at times. Like I said, I wish there was a better variety.
