It’s a sad day for ESPN fans. John Saunders, who went on from Citytv here in Canada to a long career with ESPN, has died. Saunders had also done Toronto Raptors games for TV back in the day; folks have also seen him on the ESPN college football coverage on ABC. This is a real stunner; it sounds like this was a sudden thing, unlike Stuart Scott or Jim Valvano who both had cancer fights. Hannah Storm had to announce the news today on ESPN and she was in tears.
Anyway, I don’t much feel like watching sports today after this news. What a downer.
