Pat Summerall was a legendary NFL announcer for many decades, but he died today of cardiac arrest.
After playing as a pro himself for nearly a decade, Pat joined the CBS broadcast team in 1964 and quickly became a legend!
He most famously worked for years in tandem with John Madden — the iconic pair called many memorable football games together!
In a statement, John said:
"Pat was my broadcasting partner for a long time, but more than that he was my friend for all of these years. Pat Summerall is the voice of football and always will be."
Ch-ch-check out Pat's final broadcast performance with John from Super Bowl XXXVI…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
