    No one could induce the tears like Roy, Gaucho.

    This guy had a style all his own.

    Hard-hitting, with a tender side.

    I loved Roy - guy was one of the best interviewers ever. Used to watch Up Close religiously. Didn't matter who he was interviewing, he always made it interesting.

    Roy Firestone

    He developed media-career ending All-Timers disease. He was last seen bringing himself to tears doing a self-

    interview all while walking in circles around the pool at the Swimmers Hall of Fame in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

    It brings me to tears to see what has become of this legendary man with a once proud photographic memory

    concerning anything and everything sports related.

    Roy Firestone, you are dearly missed ....
