    Favorite "Keith Jackson" broadcast quote from a Bama game.

    I just listened to Keith Jackson on the Jack Arute show on Sirius. He had Keith on as guest. Keith is in his mid 80's and I know I had rater listen to him than Mooseburger .

    I listened to many games, nascar races and various other sports broadcast by Keith Jackson. I am in my 50's so Wide World of Sports was our ESPN.

    Do you have a favorite quote or phrase that you recall from Keith Jackson.

    I was living in LA at the time of the 1992 Miami -Alabama NC game. The game was almost over and where he came up with this comment they showed how much he know about Alabama and how special football was to the state.

    " Well they are beginning to dance in Opp and Cullman and Estaboga"!!!!!!!

    He is a Georgia native , but just to pull that from the recesses of his mind and call off the names of those small towns in Alabama was classic to me and show why he was and still is the best.

    Roll Tide.

    Sure do miss him. He was the best. Hope he is enjoying retirement and our win tonight.

    There will never be another KJ.

    One of my favorite snippets I recall off the top of my head was when the barn was playing and Cadillac Williams was a freshman. He was stopped on the line and Keith said "and the Cadillac has done run out of gas."

    The 1992 Sugar Bowl was my first real introduction to Keith Jackson, and it's hard to pick one favorite quote from that game. The Eastaboga line, though, is right up there.

    I loved the way he said "Alabama" with the accent on the Al.

    Sat in my car after getting back from lunch just to listen to him. Hope I sound half that good in my mid-80s!

    Keith Jackson and Frank Broyles. Yankee-Americans had to have a translator.

    What all was he talking about? I heard him on a radio show about 6 months ago and kept wanting to talk about the PAC-8 & Washington in particular.

    I thought he was a west coaster and living in Washington.

    Sorry, he lives in LA now.

    You would think with all the media hype they would have come up with some segment for him given his connection to such 2 traditional programs. I think it would have been good TV.

    (In the same game in the Sugar Bowl), not sure at what point, but after Bama had scored to take a comfortable lead, KJ said something like "well, I guess there's no doubt as to who is the best team in the country this year". B. Griese said "not in my mind".

    I remember watching the 91 Bama vs Tennessee game, I couldn't make it to BHM and David Palmer had the ball and he said, Palmer is running all the way to Bessemer or something like that, don't remember the wording.
