Keith Jackson Tribute (Video)

Growing up, I LOVED watching college football and one of the big reasons was I would be captivated to the TV watching Keith Jackson.

So, I was very sad to learn of the passing of the legendary broadcaster this morning.

With his distinctive voice, Keith Jackson covered a variety of sports during his fifty-year career including college football, the NFL, Major League Baseball, the NBA, boxing, auto racing, the PGA Tour, the United States Football League and the Olympic Games.  Keith was the first Monday Night Football play by play man and also starred in one of my favorite Miller Lite commercials of all-time. He came up with a host of catch phrases, including ‘Whoa Nellie!’ which he explains here.

But New Year’s Day, calling the Rose Bowl, the ‘granddaddy of them all’ as Keith would say, was where he was especially good.

Keith called  fifteen Rose Bowl games, more than any other broadcaster in history. His last broadcast was one of the best games I ever watched – the historic BCS National Championship game between USC and Texas where the Longhorns QB Vince Young scored on 4th and 5 with 19 seconds left and led Texas to the BCS National Championship.

Back in 2015, the Broadcast Center at the Rose Bowl was renamed in honor of the legendary broadcaster and here is the video tribute that played.

Enjoy & RIP Keith Jackson.

 

PGA Tour Golfer Shoos Alligator Off Golf Course at Bay Hill

PGA Tour golfer Cody Gribble was amazing on Thursday by shaking an alligator by its tail to shoo it off the Bay Hill Golf Course in Orlando. That action caused reptile to dive straight into the Bay Hill Lake. The incident occurred during the first round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Other PGA Tour golfers didn’t want any part of the reptile. Not sure I could be brave enough to try something similar. What about you?
