Two of my favorite analysts have passed. John Kerr was a fan first and foremost. He enhanced any broadcast he was on. I'm sorry to see Big Red go. He seemed like a class guy!
In regards to Mr. Van Lier,the blog below says it better then I could have.
Norm was also a great ballplayer on some of the best BULLS teams of all-time. I still remember
like it was yesterday the BULLS teams back in the early '70's.
Hopefully,someday the BULLS of today will find ballplayers who played the game with the same fire & passion as Norm did!
