I remember the Munich Games, what a sad time in Olympic History.
He will always be remembered for his coverage of this sad, but historic time..

DH and I heard this on XM radio as we were driving home. We talked about how Jim was one of the best sportscasters ever; he could cover any sport and explain it so well to the viewing audience. He didn't come across as having a big ego, either. He will be missed.
