Bob Costas: The Last Word

by Alex Smith

Bob Costas is one of the most awarded sports broadcasters we have ever seen. A winner of an incredible 25 Emmy Awards, Costas has also covered multiple World Series, NBA Championships, Super Bowls, and Olympic Games. While all of those accolades are certainly noteworthy, Costas recently took home what he calls one of the great honors of his career, WFUV’s Vin Scully Lifetime Achievement Award.

The Mets swept the Yankees for the first time that the sixteen year-series has been played, and it was only the fourth time they won the season series. Contained within those four games was the first blown save in 2013 for the great Mariano Rivera (the first time he failed to record an out in his storied career), a 9-4 blowout much needed by a struggling offense, and four starters who pitched into the sixth inning or deeper.
