Don Wittman Calls It a Life

Scoring Update! The points change, death remains the same...

Don Wittman, whose smooth baritone voice called some of Canada's most significant sports, has died of cancer. He was 71.

For more than 40 years, Wittman was a familiar face on CBC television. He did the play-by-play for Grey Cups and Stanley Cups, plus covered curling, golf and track and field. He was a fixture at both summer and winter Olympics.

"He is truly a first-generation television sports legend. He's one of the pioneers of our industry," Scott Moore, executive director of CBC Sports, said in January. "He has done almost everything and done it all well."
Congratulations and 24 points are awarded to It's Always Sunny in Philadeadphia. That's already the second solo shot for IASIP's squad this year. The Rosters and Standings have been updated.
