One Of The Best- Stu Nahan

Sportscaster Stu Nahan died yesterday after a long bout with lymphoma. At last nights Kings game they held a moment of silence in his honor. This announcement before the game was a shock to me and I'm sure he'll be sorely missed by many.

Stu Nahan was once a professional hockey player in the Maple Leafs organization, having played for their minor league affiliate Los Angeles Monarchs until 1952.
"The real reason I quit was because I had a terrific sunburn on the back of my neck, which I got because the red light was on most of the time I was in the net," he would quip about the signal for a goal scored in hockey.
He was one of my favorite sports personalities. Who can forget his recurring roles in the "Rocky" films and his appearance in "Fast Times at Ridgemont High."

"Hey dude, nice jacket."

Woops. I guess the exact quote is, "Where'd you get that jacket!"
