Rest in Peace. A memorable voice, always made sports interesting to a non-sports guy like me when I was growing up.

If memory serves Keith Jackson was behind the mike when Penn State beat Georgia to win their 1st Championship in the 82/83 Sugar Bowl. I didn't hear that broadcast live...I was in the stadium...but I think I remember him on the recording we made. Trouble was...the guy who made the tape forgot New Orleans was in a different time zone...we missed the end of the taped game! Anyway, R.I.P. Keith...
