Sportscasting lost one of the local greats today as former DC-area Sportscaster Georgie Michael lost his battle with cancer today at the age of 70. I used to stay up on Sunday nights to watch the "George Michael Sports Machine", as he would push the overly big button as he would say "Let's go to the videotape!". For rodeo fans, there was no bigger advocate than George Michael. Sadly, NBC forced budget cuts forced his great show off of the air some years ago.
Ken Fang of Fang's Bites has collated links to all of the columns written about Michael today, and they are well worth reading. Meanwhile, here is one of the clips Ken dug up.
Rest in Peace George!
