Legendary sports broadcaster Dick Enberg died Thursday night from a suspected heart attack. He was 82.

Enberg was famous for his, “Oh, my!” reaction to spectacular moments. He worked for NBC Sports, beginning in 1975, and covered every sport imaginable, from the Olympics to horse racing to basketball. His time in the golf booth lasted from 1995-99, when he worked events like the U.S. Open, Ryder Cup and Players Championship.
