Curt Goudy Dead at 86
Curt "The Cowboy" Goudy died at his home in Palm Springs Florida today after a long battle with leukemia. He was 86 years old. Mr. Goudy was most well known as a football and baseball commentator for NBC Sports. He was also an avid outdoorsman and the host of NBC's American Sportsman television show.
"I was a very lucky guy," Gowdy said in 2002. "I grew up in Wyoming. My father was the best fly fisherman in the state. We had free access to prime-time fishing and hunting. The outdoors was a way of life for me. I should have paid them to host 'American Sportsman.' "
Mr. Goudy's passing made news on several media outlets tonight including a post from fellow blogger Pete over at Fishing Jones.
