I was going to start such a thread, but you got in while I was writing at considerable length about someone far less associated with television ;-)

Nonetheless, it doesn't seem all that long since I started Julian Wilson's obituary thread (in which he was an inevitable presence ...)

Back on topic...

John McCririck made televised racing into something more than just 'sports coverage'.
I loved listening to him, and learning from him.
I missed him when he was 'dropped', and racing was never quite the same again.
Thanks, John. Thanks for the memories.

A good job we don't all think alike, I suppose.
