For children of new media, it can be hard to remember exactly how iconic a great broadcaster is. In a world where you could count the TV channels on one hand, having a weekly spot on one of them put you in the company of the president and maybe even the pope.

So it’s sadder than you might think to see John Madden hang up his headset. He left a substantial legacy as a coach, but for us he'll always be the voice of Sunday afternoon color commentary. He was one of the more heartfelt voices on the set, and left his mark in more ways than we can count—although the telestrator and the turducken would be good places to start.

Fare thee well, Mr. Madden. You’ll be missed.
