Photos: Pat Summerall dies - a look at his past
Pat Summerall died Tuesday at age 82 of cardiac arrest in Texas.
Over four decades, Summerall described some of the biggest games in America in his deep, resonant voice. Simple, spare, he delivered the details on 16 Super Bowls, the Masters and the U.S. Open tennis tournament with a simple, understated style that was the perfect complement for the "booms!" and "bangs!" of John Madden, his football partner for the last half of the NFL player-turned-broadcaster's career.
