Don Meredith 1938-2010
Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback and broadcaster Don Meredith died Sunday from a brain hemorrhage. Meredith along with Howard Cosell and Frank Gifford constituted the first foray of the National Football League into prime time television in what became known as Monday Night Football and a fixture in popular culture. Meredith's folksy humor was the perfect foil for the bombastic Cosell and the reserved Gifford.
