RIP Gil Santos

Sad news last night with the passing of Gil Santos. It’s hard to believe his last season in the broadcast booth was 2012. It doesn’t feel that long ago that Gil and Gino were calling the action from high above Gillette Stadium.

Gil Santos was the best Boston sports radio play-by-play man of my lifetime. Even with all of the success Boston sports teams have enjoyed over the past 17 years, it is Santos’s call of the tuck rule review (and reversal) that remains one of my favorites.

The Super Bowl that year wasn’t bad either.

We’ll miss you, Gil.
