Frank Gifford, Sportscaster and NFL Hall of Famer, Dies at 84

Frank Gifford, whom our generation knows as a football commentator, but had a career in the 50s and early 60s as a running back for the New York Giants has died.  I remember Gifford presenting game highlights for CBS when I first watched NFL football in the late 60s.  When ABC started Monday Night Football in the early 70s, Gifford joined the crew in the second season, replacing  Keith Jackson.  Gifford had a smooth delivery and Hollywood looks.  Gifford played for USC in college.  His wife Kathy Lee is a co host on the Today Show.
