Original NFL Monday Night Football Color Man- 'Dandy Don' Meredith Dead at Age 72

The Kansas City Chiefs were the World Champions when NFL football made it's regular TV prime-time debut on "Monday Night Football" on the ABC television network in the fall of 1970.



One of the original TV booth triumvirate was the colorful- ex-Dallas Cowboy quarterback Don Meredith and I'm sad to report this Monday morning that "Dandy Don" as many of us called him has passed away in New Mexico of a brain hemorrhage.




Don Meredith was 72.
