In 1970, I was stationed in Japan and watched boxing from Los Angeles on Armed Forces Television. Dick Enberg was the lead announcer and his colleague commented that Mr. Enberg was just named the California Sportscaster of the Year. He replied, “In all honesty, that is the third best thing that’s happened to me today. My 5-year-old learned to tie her shoes and my 2-year-old became potty trained.”
What a classy and down to earth human being. RIP Dick.
