‘Dandy Don’ Meredith Dies of Brain Hemorrhage

Former Dallas Cowboy quarterback and original “Monday Night Football” broadcaster Don Meredith died over the weekend after suffering a brain hemorrhage and slipping into a coma. He has 72 years old.

The best obit we’ve read on Meredith comes courtesy of Dave Goldberg of Fanhouse, who reminds us that aside from his sporting endeavors, Meredith helped coin the moniker “Tricky Dick” for Richard Nixon. Goldberg also remembers Meredith for his small role as an LA cop on the show “Police Story.” Meredith also played country music with Willie Nelson for a time.

An interesting guy to say the least. RIP.
