Sportscaster Les Keiter dies

Les Keiter, famed sports broadcaster, died at age 89, in Hawaii.

I wasn't familiar with Mr. Keiter, but I heard a story on NPR's All Things Considered about him. He would 'broadcast' completed games from boxscores, using sound effects.

There was an episode of M*A*S*H that incorporated this method of 'broadcasting'. has a more complete obituary.

I should turn off the television and find a radio station that has a game on and close my eyes.
