Unless I heard incorrectly Callas was found dead in the Phillies broadcast booth today. If that is true, it is an appropriate way for a broadcasting legend to go.

That is correct.

Read the report of his passing on Yahoo! news. Sad, sad day. I really enjoyed Kalas. The veteran broadcasters are more even-handed and less "homer" than newer guys. They tend to give the other teams credit.

Kalas was one of those guys.

My wife and I are especially sad about the passing of Harry Kalas. Along with everything on his impressive resume, the Puppy Bowl was an annual Super Bowl pregame tradition in our house (our dogs love to watch dogs on tv, they would sit and stare at the Puppy Bowl for hours).

Well, my wife and I went to the Super Bowl this season, and forgot to DVR the puppy bowl. We missed Harry's last one. I hope my pups notice the difference next season.

And now the news is coming out that Mark Fidrych(sp?) passed on as well.

Very sad.

Yikes - double sad news. This report is, unfortunately, true. Fidrych died in an accident on his farm.
