Monday Night Football teamDon Meredith, the former 'Monday Night Football' co-host, has died at the age of 72.

Meredith passed away in Santa Fe, NM of complications from emphysema and a brain hemorrhage he suffered on Sunday. He previously suffered a stroke in 2004.

Meredith was probably unknown to many younger TV viewers, but "Dandy Don" was everywhere in the 1970s and '80s. His trademark while calling games, besides his casual demeanor and humor, was singing 'Turn Out The Lights' when it was obvious that the game was indeed over.

The end of Monday Night Football -- on ABC, anyhow.

Well, it's been a great 36 years, ABC, but, as Jonathon reported the other day, like a middle-aged man with a mid-life crisis dumping his faithful wife for the hot young secretary, Monday Night Football is running off with a new love - ESPN. Tonight's game between the New England Patriots and New York Jets marks the long-running sports juggernaut's last hurrah on ABC. Next season, if you want your Monday Night Football, you'll have to shell out the bucks for cable to watch it over on ESPN. The game itself isn't any big deal -- the Jets are long since out of the playoffs, but I imagine some people are watching for old times' sake.
