I always enjoyed listening to Merlin Olsin and Dick Enberg calling the AFC games when I was younger. Wasn't it Olsen and Enberg calling the Skins over Miami in the SB??

I looked up to him as a kid. RIP.

He was an awesome character on Little House

Was that him on Little House? guess it was. Remember Rosie Greer in Danel Boone? He once said he relaxed by crocheting.

I remember him from his playing and announcing days. I didn't watch those shows.

He played the butler / bodyguard Benton in the classic Joe Don Baker film "Mitchell"
Some of you may remember this from Mystery Science Theater 3000 days.
That movie has made me laugh so many times, he will be missed.

RIP Merlin. Miss seeing you walking around town. One of the all time NFL greats and a nice guy.

God Bless him and the loved ones he left behind. While it's always sad to see or hear about someone dying, it's nice to see that he was able to live a pretty darn good life and accomplish an extraordinary amount.

I can still hear him and Enberg's voice in the booth.
