That Awesome Voice From NFL Films

The big baritone voice heard on the old shows by NFL Films was that of John Facenda. The other night I watched an old episode and it sure did stir up some fond memories from my childhood. I remember hearing his awesome voice while watching the weekly NFL Films show. Those shows and his voice served as motivation to go outside and play some serious football with my friends. Today I think I'll take my son out in the backyard, give him the football, and then show him my Dick Butkus-like tackling technique.

Click here to listen to Mr. Facenda narrating "The Autumn Wind". I would imagine that it is a favorite of Raider fans.
