Booth team deserves mention

An entertaining special section on the 75 years of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament [March 11-17, 2013].

But wow … I can’t find a mention anywhere of [Dick] Enberg, [Billy] Packer and [Al] McGuire, the announce team that I would argue did as much, or more, to popularize the sport as any of the marketing, programming or NCAA executives you credit.

I know you distribute to those executives, but still, a mention of one of the best announce teams in our industry’s history would have been nice.
