Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, December 22, 2017

Legendary announcer Dick Enberg, whose amazing sportscasting career spanned six decades, died Thursday at the age of 82. He did play-by-play for college basketball, college and professional football and Major League Baseball. He also called other sporting events such as boxing, tennis, golf, horse racing and the Olympics. ... Enberg's big break came when he was chosen to call UCLA basketball games. During that nine-year stint, the Bruins won eight NCAA titles. When asked what was the most historically important event he covered, Enberg replied, "The Game of the Century." In that 1968 game, the University of Houston Cougars beat UCLA to snap the Bruin's 47-game winning streak.
