Good Like Glickman

by Bob Ahrens

WFUV Sports

Marty Glickman was a great athlete, a great broadcaster and a great broadcast coach. His prowess on the football field and in track is well documented.  The Olympic snub shall forever remain an embarrassment to the USOC.  “Swish”, “good, like Nedicks”. “It’s high enough, it’s deep enough, it’s good” and “a couple a-three yards” became part of New York broadcasting lexicon.  He created the method and set the standard for broadcasting basketball on the radio and he was the reason people turned down the TV sound to hear Giants’ football on the radio.
