who was he?
Thoughts above make me wish I'd had the pleasure of listening to the southern CA man. Many things go into good announcing including preparation, passion for the sport and the ability to enunciate clearly. There's more and it seems like from all I've read here about ScottD, there was plenty more to the man than calling a race. Obviously, a huge loss for all things running.
