News 12 Long Island to sign Bob Wolff for two more years
Bob Wolff, a walking, talking, still working trove of sports broadcasting history, has re-upped for two more years at News 12 Long Island, the station will announce later today.
By the end of the deal, my soon-to-be Cablevision teammate will have been in broadcasting for 71 years, 64 of them on television. Yikes! That's even longer than Evan Roberts has been in the business.
Bob was at the mike for the first NBA game I remember watching - the Knicks' classic come-from-behind victory over the Royals in 1969.
That game was one of those remembered by readers in Wednesday's post that invited people to recall infamous sports collapses.
Thanks to all for contributing. Many worthy contenders.
I kind of like JBM's reminder of the Jets' double-OT playoff loss to the Browns after the 1986 season. That one hurt.
