Central Michigan honoring Dick Enberg with helmet sticker during Famous Idaho Potato Bowl
Legendary sports broadcaster Dick Enberg passed away Thursday night at age 82.
On Friday, Central Michigan decided to honor Enberg, an alumnus and former Chippewas baseball player, during its Famous Idaho Potato Bowl matchup vs. Wyoming with helmet stickers featuring his signature catch phrase, “Oh my!”
Despite his busy schedule, calling games for NBC, CBS, and ESPN during his decades-long career, Enberg remained an engaged CMU alumnus.
Here’s a look at a great sit-down he had with CMU’s athletics department just over a year ago, discussing his time at the school and his career:
Last November, Adam Jaksa, the interim director of multimedia services for CMU Athletics, sat down with Dick Enberg for a wide-ranging interview. His grace, sense of pride in CMU and a drive to succeed all come through in this one-on-one conversation. #OhMy #FireUpChips pic.twitter.com/0U9M2oHiMW— CMU Athletics (@CMUAthletics) December 22, 2017
One of Enberg's most famous "Oh my!" calls came in the 1987 AFC Championship game, with The Fumble.
Central Michigan and Wyoming face off Friday at 4:00.
