RIP Nick Charles of CNN

Sorry to read this today - I always liked CNN's Sports Tonight was better than Sports Center, mostly because the hosts didn't act like doofuses. (Although ESPN had not fully gone down that road yet) He and Fred Hickman seemed like they genuinely liked each other.

Favorite "Play of the Day" - one of the slow sports days, when they showed a bread truck trying to jump a 40 foot gap or so at some local race track. It made it about 10 feet and landed flat on it's side. It's very difficult to explain how funny that was at the time -kind of looked like the Laugh-In tricycle gag.
