This totally, totally blows. My profession and brotherhood has lost a man...right in my home state.

ABC Sports Cameraman Dies After Falling (Associated Press)

Richard Umansky from Florida was a near-20-year veteran of ABC Sports. He was setting up a camera position at Camp Randall Stadium for last Saturday's Wisconsin-Iowa game (which the Badgers lost)...when he fell from a wooden platform onto one of Camp Randall's concrete entry ramp, hitting his head.

It took him 2 days to die...*shudder*

At least Al Michaels mentioned him last night on Monday Night Football...but it's sure hard to find a mention of him online.

Rest in peace, brother.

San news indeed. The people who make it possible to see our beloved sports should get more attention than they do. RIP.
