RIP Jim McKay

Jim McKay died today at his home in Maryland.

Graduate of Loyola College in Baltimore, Maryland, a Navy veteran, former reporter for the Baltimore Sun, (Remembering Jim McKay), well known for hosting “Wide World of Sports”, and his coverage of the tragedy that was the Munich Olympics, where his words “They’re all gone,” haunt my grandfather and father to this day.

I hear he was a gentleman.

May he rest in peace.
