Dick Stockton

It's nice to do an entry about a celebrity that's not an obituary.

 Dick Stockton announced his retirement yesterday. 78. NFL, MLB, NBA, NCAA, Boston Red Sox local radio and TV. He's earned it. It's time. Solid and dependable, you knew what you would get when you tuned in a Dick Stockton game. When FOX grabbed the NFC football package away from CBS more than 25 years ago, it bought instant credibility by hiring Pat Summerall and John Madden for its top team. Overlooke3d in that deal-- additional credibility insurance in the form of hiring Dick Stockton to head the second FOX team.

 He has a high energy delivery, but when Dick Stockton was behind the mic, the game was the star. He will be missed on Sunday afternoons.
