Van Miller, Dead at 87

I all but ignore football now. Sure, I'll tune into the Grey Cup and Superbowl, and with the right story line, I could get into a playoff game or two, but otherwise I don't spend a minute watching or listening to football.

It wasn't always this way. In addition to watching our Argos, I used to love the Buffalo Bills. I was there for their four Superbowl appearances in a row and stuck around until the Music City Miracle. During that era, in addition to watching on TV, I discovered the Bills on  WGR 550 where Van Miller was the voice. I loved how he called Bills games.

If you missed Van Miller, here are a few of his gems. He was the play-by-play announcer for the Bills for 37 seasons before retiring after the 2003 season.
