Jim McKay Passes Away at 86

Jim McKay, the longtime face of "ABC's Wide World of Sports" and most widely acclaimed for his tactful yet compassionate reporting of the Israeli hostage crisis at the 1972 Munich Olympics, died Saturday. He was 86, but lived a rich life and was very much of my childhood -- most notably, Saturday afternoons growing up.

McKay was also part of the Baltimore Orioles ownership group which is headed Peter Angelos.

Godspeed, Jim.
