Curt Gowdy(going, going, gone)
I am more passionate about baseball than almost anything else. I love its sounds, its smells, its history. Curt Gowdy's voice is one of the reasons I love the game. For many years, his was the only voice I heard broadcasting major league baseball. He was factual, informed and seemed to love the sport and its traditions. His death helps me recall an era when the game of the week was special. I wish there had been a way for him to know how much he influenced my love of the game.
