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.

My two teams are both on Monday night (Redskins/Raiders), although I'm kinda glad I'll have to work during the sure to be classic Chargers/Raiders game. I'm really looking forward to the Manning game on Sunday night.
