a bit of sad news

A bit of UGA-related news from yesterday: longtime Georgia radio man Larry Munson officially announced his retirement yesterday, at age 85. Like most great radio personalities, Munson is an institution with the UGA fan base, even if he's not the greatest technical announcer (particularly these last few years -- if you're not familiar with the plays he's describing in the video below, you'll have no idea what's going on). Still, in a sports radio world that's becoming increasingly more bland and sound-alike, Munson stood out, and very few personalities still do.

Below, some of Munson's greatest calls. Back later today with the Roundtable.
