Broadcasting legend Jim McKay passed away this morning at the age of 86. He was the originator of the famous line, "the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat." I will always remember him most for his coverage of the 1972 Olympics when the Israeli athletes were killed and how he led the entire world through the aftermath in a calm, fatherly fashion.

Talent such as his can never be replaced. You will be missed Mr. McKay.
