Going, going… gone

I was sorry to hear about the passing of longtime ESPN sportscaster John Saunders. Not just because he seemed like a really nice guy, but also because he was one of the few “worldwide leader” ESPN personalities that didn’t have copious amounts of smugness, smarm and/or shtick.

He was just an old school broadcaster who came across as relatable and reliable. They are few and far between these days.
