R.I.P.

Brookshier and Summerall were a great team for CBS in the 70's.

Tom was Pat Summeral's partner before John Madden, they made a good team... R.I.P.

Brookshier towards the end of his run at CBS, replaced Frank Glieber on NFL play-by-play after Glieber suddenly died of a heart attack.

Something I didn't know, from the nytimes.com

I'm surprised to learn that they even had ten rounds of draft in 1953. I mean, with no satellite, TV or videotape, what could they possibly know about most players?

When the Boston Celtics drafted Sam Jones, no one in their organization had ever seen him play, either live or even in a filmclip. They simply relied on one person's report that he was a good enough player to be drafted high.
