Dandy Don dead at 72

This guy made Monday Night Football and in my view was one of the best reasons there was to watch the NFL Monday night games... now he's gone... God bless and rest him, God console and comfort his loved ones:

Don Meredith, one of the most recognizable figures of the early Dallas Cowboys and an original member of ABC's "Monday Night Football" broadcast team, died Sunday. He was 72.

Meredith's wife, Susan, told The Associated Press on Monday her husband died in Santa Fe after suffering a brain hemorrhage and lapsing into a coma. She says a private graveside ceremony is being planned and that family members were traveling to Santa Fe.

"He was the best there was," she said, describing him as kind, warm and funny. "We lost a good one."

We did indeed.  He will be missed.  He was missed.  He is missed.

Sadly, the public of today has been so numbed down into abject stupidity that a live TV combination of Meredith, Cosell and Gifford would not even be green-lighted, much less successful. That said, Meredith was a true American icon. RIP.

Don was part of an era when sports had class. And humor. And entertainment. And respect for each other.

Today's sports relies way too much on drugs, ghetto thuggery and trash talk.

Guess that's what sells to today's 24/7 connected time-poor young moderns.

Being older and wiser has it's advantages.

Rest well, Dandy Don.

Rest in Peace Mr. Meredeth ... (Below threshold)

Rest in Peace Mr. Meredeth and may the Lord comfort his family during their time of sorrow.

I suppose it is too much to hope that Don might have tarried through the last quarter of the Dallas-Indianapolis game to see his Cowboys win a big one once again.

Meredith was one of the early Texan Dallas Cowboys (along with Walt Garrison and Bob Lilly) that I idolized as a kid. RIP Dandy Don. Man, I feel old now.

Well darn ... RIP Mr. Mered... (Below threshold)

Well darn ... RIP Mr. Meredith.
Another icon rides off into the sunset.
