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.



Star wipe, and...we're out.
Thrillin' ain't easy.

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

It's too bad Joel Zumaya probably can't read a zone defense or look off his primary target.
