Harry Kalas was an outstanding baseball broadcaster but I'll most remember Kalas for his association with NFL Films.
That distinctive, elegant voice was something many NFL fans grew up on. He took over for John Facenda who had been nicknamed "The Voice of God" by some NFL fans.
Kalas had his own saintly pipes. At NFL Films his work ethic was legendary as was his respect for players.
You know a voice is powerful when people can identify it as easily as they can some stars in the sport.
In the coming days you'll hear an outpouring from league officials as well as from NFL Films because Kalas was so highly respected within the sport.
