DALLAS (AP) – Pat Summerall was the calm alongside John Madden’s storm.

Over four decades, Summerall described some of the biggest games in America
in his deep, resonant voice. Simple, spare, he delivered the details on 16 Super
Bowls, the Masters and the U.S. Open tennis tournament with a simple, understated
style that was the perfect complement for the "booms!" and "bangs!" of Madden,
his football partner for the last half of the NFL player-turned-broadcaster’s career.

Summerall died Tuesday at age 82 of cardiac arrest, said University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center spokesman Jeff Carlton, speaking on behalf of 
Summerall’s wife, Cheri.
