In dorm rooms across the country in the late 1960s and early 1970s, sometimes through a haze of pot smoke, a recording could be heard that sounded like an old-time radio detective show mixed with Eastern mysticism. He's ready for excitement, He's ready for anything, He's Nick Danger, Third Eye! Phil Austin, the founding member of the group who created and voiced the wacky detective, died Friday in Fox Island, Washington. He was 74.
Garo Yepremian, the former NFL kicker who helped the Miami Dolphins win consecutive NFL championships but is best remembered for a Super Bowl blooper, died Friday of cancer. He was 70. Yepremian's wife, Maritza, said he died at a hospital in Media, Pa. His illness was diagnosed in May 2014, she said.
