Harry Kalas Dies, Was The Kind Of Guy Who Would Have Appreciated A Meal At Sibling Rivalry. Kalas is best known as the radio voice for the Philadelphia Phillies. But we NFL fans know him mainly as the voice of highlights for the NFL Films clips on “Inside the NFL”. In fact, when I think of NFL Films clips, it isn’t John Facenda’s voice that first comes to mind. It’s Kalas’. He could even make an old Lions video yearbook sound like a noble endeavor. “The Lions stumbled down the stretch, but the surprising play of their young special teams is giving Detroit fans the hope that one day soon, their proud and historic franchise will rise up with a thunderous roar.” Kalas was 73. He is already deeply missed.

UPDATE: As if today didn’t suck hard enough, Marilyn Chambers died too. Oh, what I would have given to hear Harry Kalas narrate “Behind The Green Door”.
