I am incredibly saddened by the news of Murray Walker's passing. When I was at EMI and Fox, i had coworkers in the UK record F1 races, send them to me as PAL tapes, and then my friend's post production company would convert then to NTSC for me, all so I could hear Murray's commentary. He was such an important part of the fabric of F1.

Muddy Talker, truly one of the world's great sportscasters.

His autobiography is outstanding.

Unless I'm very much mistaken...

Damn. They were really close. Always loved him telling the stories about going on vacation with Mr. and Mrs. Newhart

That would have changed the Lando persona. Billy Dee was perfect for that role.

But Yaphet would have been excellent.

Kotto was great. I've always associated him with this character.

In my mind/heart she replaced Ben Collins as The Stig. She was wonderful.

RIP to the Queen of the 'Ring.

I liked it too, was a part of that era denoting the peak of those simple setup sitcoms being good.
