Scully Award Winner Lets the Moment Speak for Itself
The first occurred in Super Bowl 13 between the Dallas Cowboys and Pittsburgh Steelers on January 21st, 1979. Cowboys tight end Jackie Smith dropped a wide open touchdown pass that would have won them the game. Verne, long time radio play-by-play man for the Cowboys, appropriately said "Bless his heart, he's got to be the sickest man in America."
And no one will ever forget the Iron Bowl just two weeks later. Chris Davis of Auburn returning a missed Alabama field goal for the game winning touchdown is a moment that Verne now ranks near the top of his list.
The key for Verne, and something he has done since the beginning, is letting the moment speak for itself, and being a minimalist. He does it brilliantly.
