    75 years old and still climbing up on a roof to blow the leaves off.

    Tough way to go - great story about him not expecting to play in the Super Bowl so he was really really hung over when Lombardi called his number.

    Growing up in Green Bay and the UP of Michigan, I remember listening to him call many Packer games on the radio as a kid. Even though they broadcast for the Packers, Jim Irwin and McGee were a classic and classy broadcast team.

    RIP Max.

    Sad way to go.
    My grandpa is 89, if I show this to him hopefully it stops him from climbing on the roof.
