RIP John Saunders

Sad day at ESPN yesterday. Their classy anchorman/reporter/announcer John Saunders passed away suddenly at the age of 61. The staff at ESPN was stunned--and paid tribute to him all day yesterday.

Today, the great sportswriter John Feinstein wrote about him. I particularly like this portion of his column...

If I’ve figured one thing out during all the years I’ve worked in journalism, it is that those who are the best at what they do rarely need to be told, or tell others, just how good they are.

They just know.

John Saunders, who died suddenly and shockingly Wednesday at the age of 61, was one of those people.
