Don Meredith, Dead at 72

A good quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys and a great TV broadcaster:

“I always thought of Don Meredith as Dean Martin,” said the NFL Network’s Joe Theismann, who worked in the booth with Meredith for Super Bowl XIX. “I always pictured him with a highball in one hand and a cigarette in the other, and just cruisin’ along. And, oh by the way, we get to share a little slice of his life with him.”

Monday Night Football was never the same without him and Cosell.
