Three Sportscasting Legends Retire

Just a quick mention to let people know that three of the greatest sports announcers ever to grace the airwaves are bidding a final farewell to the sports world.

Vin Scully, one of the greatest Major League Baseball announcers ever has finally retired after 67 seasons in the broadcast booth. I remember watching him on CBS and NBC during the 70's and 80's when he used to do the MLB Game of the Week.

Dick Enberg. one of the best ever to work the NFL booth and also Tennis has retired after nearly 60 years in the broadcast booth. Enberg is likely remembered best for being teamed with Merlin Olsen for NBC's coverage of the NFL during the 70's and 80's. And his coverage of several other sports like Tennis, the NBA, MLB and Golf is also going to be remembered.

Verne Lundquist, who is currently calling Southeast Conference College football games on CBS with Gary Danielson is set to retire at the end of this season. Verne started in the booth in 1967 with the Dallas Cowboys and that eventually led to his later work with the NFL, NBA and the pro golf tour. And his appearance in the movie "Happy Gilmore" is one of his most memorable moments on air.

Best wishes to all of you with your future retirement plans! Your fans will always remember your work in the broadcast booth.
