Stu Nahan dies at 81

Legendary SoCal sports broadcaster Stu Nahan passed away today at the age of 81. When you think of classic LA sportscasters, it's hard not to think of Stu Nahan. He always brought class and dignity to the airwaves and was a pleasure to listen to. Personally, I'll remember his work on the Rocky movies and "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" as much as any of his sports work. Larry Stewart writes the obituary for the LA Times.
