LENT Day 23: RiP Merlin Olsen, former Ram. former sports announcer, former actor.

Merlin Olsen passed away today.
He had a great voice for football and he worked with Professor Dick Enberg on memorable NFL football games.

Besides performing on "Little House on the Prairie" and "Father Merlin," Olsen was "Little George" in "The Undefeated" starring John Wayne and Rock Hudson. Olsen played a Victor McLagen-type character who chased teammate Roman Gabriel in the middle of a cowboy donnybrook.

The just don't make voices like Merlin Olsen anymore.
