R.I.P. Jim Mckay

Today is a sad day in the world of Sport.  The legendary ABC sports announcer Jim Mckay passed away this morning.  Jim is probably best known for his broadcasts during the 1972 Olympics  when the Israeli athletes were taken hostage and then murdered.  Jim was also the voice of Wide World of Sports.   Jim Mckay helped pave the way for channels like ESPN.  He was a legend and he will be missed.  Rest in Piece Mr. Mckay.  We will miss you, but we will never forget you.
