Legendary News sportswriter Blackie Sherrod dies at 96

He wasn't only sportswriter, he covered the Kennedy Assassination, wrote columns when Apollo 11 landed on the moon and the Democratic National Convention in 1960.

I remember occationally running into him at the colorful media watering hole, Joe Miller's. Especially one night when a few us of sat listening to Blackie spin his stories into the wee hours of the morning way after closing time.

Another great from my past is gone. RIP Blackie.
