    Unofficial TV voice of the Dallas Cowboys, official voice of the NFC East. Nobody did a VoiceOver on those NFL on CBS intro's in the 80's and 90's like Pat Summerall. He's simply the best! RIP PAT!!

    RIP Pat.

    He and John Madden will always be associated with my memories of those great 90s Cowboys teams.

    I shared an elevator with him at Cowboys Stadium last year, I think he was just there as a fan.

    I also enjoyed the stories he told in interviews of him and Mickey Mantle when they both lived in Dallas, hanging out drinking and playing golf which caused them both problems, sounded fun though.

    A while back I was watching a YouTube video of the '96 NFC Championship Dallas vs. Green Bay. As I listened to his play by play call of the first quarter TD pass from Aikman to Irvin it hit me how great he was as a play by play announcer when compared to the verbose, constant talking style of today's play by play announcers.

    This was his call..."Aikman.....Irvin....Touchdown!!" It was something to see him allow the cameras, the crowd noise and Irvin's celebration on the field to fill in the rest of the description.

    What a great announcer. Sad to see him go.

    Nobody could say "Murder She Wrote" like Pat Summerall.

    We have lost a true football icon.

    Thoughts and Prayers. Just saw him at a Church Men's Conference about 6 weeks ago. There is no doubt he is in a better place.

    That's too bad. A former player who knew the game and gave us insights that many announcers did not half.
    You will be missed, kind sir. It's a loss for the NFL and for fans as well as his family and friends.
