I will always remember his soothing voice.
RIP Pat-You were the voice of the NFL when I first fell in love with the league.
I think I read in this newspaper once many, many years ago that Pat Summerall tried to come into the Vikings locker room once before a game and Bud Grant said something like "get the hell out of here". Not that Bud Grant was a mean guy, he just didn't want any distractions for his Viking team as they prepared for the game at hand.
If my memory serves me correctly, he did radio (and maybe television) advertisements for True Value Hardware Stores. That same smooth voice was also ever present in that are of broadcasting as well. I can still hear the voice.
