A Super Team: This screen capture shows Pat Summerall and Tom Brookshier calling Super Bowl XIV for CBS Sports.
Former CBS Sports host Pat O'Brien shared these thoughts about Brookshier with Eye on Sports Media a few minutes ago:
We did, however, work together on one of the worst broadcasts in the History of Sports TV: The Calgary Stampede. It was a disaster from the first second to the end. When we got on the plane...we sent the producer a drink with the note: "Don't worry, you're only as good as your last show."
I loved him. Throw the mold away.
RIP Mr. Brookshier.
