    I am really sad to hear about the passing of Don Meredith from a brain hemmorage. He was a big big part of the " Monday Night Football ". RIP Dandy Don

      "Turn out the lights, the party's over."

      He was a smart guy and entertaining.

        I refrained from the party's over thing.

        Somebody had to do it though.

          Let's face it Jim. That is a classic part of Don Meredith. He was a pretty good quarterback too.

          Why Jim? That set him apart, and helped the writer of the song, Willie Nelson, a bit too.

    How sad.  Thanks for bringing this to our attention.  Don brought a lot to the sport of football, as well as giving colorful commentary in his broadcasting.

    I got his autograph back in the 60's when the Cowboys held their annual pre-season training camp at California Lutheran College (CLC) in Thousand Oaks, Ca. It was on a paper plate. I also got Bob Hayes' autograph on that same plate.

    He was a great and entertaining personality and a dandy quarterback too.
