Gus Is Gone, But His Most Famous Calls Mashed Up With Internet Memes Lives On Forever

During the 2010 playoffs, David "Crashtern" Matthews, former Deadspin staffer and current production coordinator for the Sports Show with Norm Macdonald blog, put together a tribute for our man Gus, who we learned today is "parting ways" with CBS. It is Gus calling the O.J. chase, Gus calling the infamous New Mexico ponytail takedown, Gus calling people getting hit in the head with different objects, and Gus calling the ending to Citizen Kane.


Gus will find a home, but it's important today that we acknowledge and pay respect to his CBS career, during which he made a soundboard for himself (the URL for which is now, fittingly, expired) and became the single loved person in very recent March Madness announcing history.

Heartbreak city.


Thank you for your continued support of Deadspin. Hickey is on his way for the hockey.
