We’ve lost Joe Garagiola, who was a mainstay of NBC’s “Game of the Week” back when a week meant only ONE nationally-televised baseball game.
We’ve lost Ken Howard, the star of ‘The White Shadow,’ arguably the best sports-centered network TV show ever.
We’ve lost Johann Cruyff, the star of the Netherlands’ “Total Football” sides that mesmerized the soccer world. Not the US, at the time, but everywhere else on the planet.
Bad news comes in threes.
