Farewell, Jim McKay

I never met Jim McKay, but grew up admiring his work. Given some of the talent on the air today, it makes McKay's achievements look all the more incredible. McKay died yesterday due to natural causes at 86 in Maryland. I was incredibly sad to hear the news, especially during one of his favorite events - the Belmont. Nobody ever said anything ill of the man.

Here's the NY Times obituary.
