Host Bob Edwards has this remembrance of Hall of Fame broadcaster Jack Buck, who died last night in St. Louis at the age of 77. He started with the Cardinals in 1954 and was Monday Night Football's radio announcer for 16 years. His track record includes numerous baseball and football championships, one of the most memorable being the famous 1967 "Ice-Bowl" NFL Title Game. He died of complications from lung cancer and abdominal surgery.
