    Quite a career. He was there for a lot of iconic sports moments, including Don Larsen’s perfect game and the 1958 NFL Championship game. Was still working till the end; career went 9 decades and 77 years. Him and Curt Gowdy are the only broadcasters to be honored in the baseball and basketball halls of fame. He always seemed to genuinely love what he was doing. It may help explain the longevity.

    "In 2013, Wollf donated about 1,400 audio and video recordings totaling some 1,500 hours, to the Library of Congress, much of it coming from an era when broadcasts were erased or not recorded at all."

    I sure hope they make that collection available somewhere.
