    Curt Gowdy

    One of my cherish memories of childhood was every Saturday afternoon and Monday evenings was listening to Curt, Tony and Joe do the game of the week. A lot of so-called broadcasters could learn something from Curt Gowdy.

      A classy guy who could cover any sport. Never the controversial type, he just called the game like it was.

      RIP Curt.

        Curt and Joe Garagedooropener kept a kid like me glued to the set in the Saturday game of the week. Young people today ( My God did I just say that??!!) don't remember the pre cable days when there was no baseball saturation and the game of the week brought the teams home to us. I always feel like Vin Scully gets the kudos gowdy deserved. Gowdy was knowledgeable, smooth, and didn't bombard you with anecdotal torture.RIP and thanks for a lot of sunny Saturday afternoons inside!

          curt was all class

          I knew Curt's voice before I knew Mel Allen's, Vin Scully's or Red Barber's. Saturdays were meant to listen to Curt and watch GOTW. RIP.

            I don't want to start an argument, but I'd rather listen to Scully. I will miss Gowdy though.

              Everybody has a favorite. Heck, for baseball, mine was Dizzy Dean. But Curt Gowdy called the game(s) very well and he was quite capable in a multitude of sports.
