It's with some sadnedd that I watched Pat Summerall do his last game with John Madden. I know Summerall isn't the same announcer he used to be, and he'll never be a slickster like Bob Costas, Jim Nantz, or Joe Buck. Still, gorwing up in one NFC city (Philly) and now living in another (St. Louis), Summerall's voice on a crisp autumn late afternoon always meant "big game." It was always a big deal when he was calling your team's game.

Yes, Summerall isn't retiring, but it won't be the same next year when the Rams play the Niners, and it's not Madden and Summerall in the booth. I'll miss that.
