I figured a death deserves it's own thread, even if it is Mariner-based.

Like I said in the Mariner forum, I grew up listening to the guy. Definitely won't be the same from now on.



EDIT: Can someone fix the spelling, supposed to be "Niehaus"

:( RIP. My favorite announcer outside of the Mets crew. He was also a reason why I consider the M's my AL Team.

He was a great ambassador for the Mariners, and baseball in general. I didn't get much of a chance to listen to his broadcasting, but his interviews were great.
Rest in peace.

Truly one of the great color men. He had the ability to make even the bad games fun. He will be missed by all. My heart goes out to his family, Godspeed Dave.

"My oh my..."

I don't know many other broadcasters that can have this many catchphrases and still just sound like it's the first time you hear it everytime. They never got old.

He was my favorite announcer other than Michael Kay. He had such a relaxing voice and should be the role model for every young announcer. He will be missed very badly.

RIP.

I find it ironic when I read about how many of you grew up listening to him, and it's Mariners. I grew up listening to him also, when he was the Angels announcer, Rams announcer, and UCLA announcer. I lived in Seattle in the 90s and got to hear him some more. He was one of the better baseball announcers, one of the few that was able to call games and keep a lot of the homer-ism out of his announcing.

There was a bot that posted. Sort of wish Brodie would edit his post so it doesn't look like he's pointing at me lol.

Service tomorrow (Saturday) at Safeco... Or so I heard anyway.

Wasn't very familiar with him but it's still very sad news.

My condolences to his family, R.I.P.

I'm a little late to the show here but I used to watch a ton of Mariner games when I lived in Tacoma. I always thought he was a bit cheesy (in a good way). RIP Dave.
