You're right; Duane already died in his motorcycle accident, didn't he? (x4 wasn't around back then for me to report on his death.)

Definitely one of the voices of my youth. Of course in those days the Packers were so bad, if you wanted to watch some exciting football, Air Coryell was always fun, and often with Dick Enberg and Merlin Olsen on the call.

Yep during those dark years I would hope there was a good game in the later in the day and Enberg and Olsen were calling the game. Definitely one of the voices of my youth. RIP Mr. Enberg.

Another part of my childhood gone.....such a soothing, fatherly voice. He hosted a game show called "Sports Challenge" in the mid 70's which was so cool at the time because you could see and hear the biggest super-stars in a fun casual setting.

We must be almost the same age. Back in 1979 when the Packers were really bad, I jumped on the San Diego Chargers bandwagon with Dan Fouts, John Jefferson, etc. Dick Enberg and Merlin Olsen seemed to be the broadcast team for those guys every week so I also got very familiar with them. They were just an excellent announcing duo and seemed to be perfect for announcing those really fun to watch Chargers teams. RIP Mr. Enberg.

That is kind of funny about jumping on a bandwagon. In the late 70's when the Packers were horrible all the kids at school jumped on a bandwagon (even though we all rooted for the Packers but were embarrassed to say it). I jumped on the Raiders bandwagon big time. And I think Enberg was doing a ton of their games then if I remember right.

I would say as a 10 year old in 1979 I still rooted for the Packers #1a, but the Chargers were #1b. Once John Jefferson got traded to the Packers in '81, I firmly moved away from the Chargers and cemented my Packers' fandom. In the late '70s probably the biggest bandwagon team amongst the kids my age was the Dallas Cowboys. I didn't gravitate towards them, but I did root for them when they would play the Steelers dynasty who in their dark black uniforms looked like the representation of...

Though a little younger, I did the exact same. Chargers were way ahead of their time. Jefferson, Joiner, Muncie, Winslow and Fouts.

Growing up in LA, my childhood was listening to him broadcast all the UCLA basketball games in the 1970's during the John Wooden era. Other great announcers in the same time period in LA were Chick Hearn for the Lakers and Vin Scully for the Dodgers.

Caught that, too, huh? Now known as "the incident". Classic Rome episode when Everett dumped the table on Rome. I think it was then that Rome started to handle his "smacktionary words" with more care. The "Incident"

Bummer. RIP, Enberg. Those Charger teams were ahead of the times and probably would tear up the league today with that passing game and the WR no-contact-allowed rules. Loved Jefferson and Winslow, but earlier Lance Alworth was crazy great.

I remember Dick and Merlin doing the ‘77 AFC Championship game. Oakland at Denver. Rob Lytle fumbled on the 1 yard line. Refs ruled that his forward progress was stopped before he fumbled. “If his forward progress was stopped then I’m not sure it ever started” Dick Enberg. This was well before replay but Dick and Merlin were all over the stripes. I had virtually zero interest in the Broncos - Browns playoff games in the 80’s. I remember those games for Enberg and the job he did as much as...

Through the miracle of St. Vince's time machine (why not -- he did everything else while in GB), in that picture Claridge was just caught fielding the extra point snap from one of the wanna-be long snappers the Packers used last season.
