    If you can't say something nice, misspell passes and forget your kids?

    Haven't seen anything from the media online on this. Just a couple notes on FB from friends.

    RIP

    He wasn't sick as far as I know.

    WHO TV 13 reported it, Murph and Andy tweeted it as well. Old age probably got him if the liquor didn't.

    Sad to lose an icon like that regardless of whether we liked his team. Lived a full, long life though.

    Re: Jim Zabel

    Regardless of what u think of him or his team, he did some pretty notable things in broadcast history, Iowa's and beyond.

    Anyone who posts some degree of satisfaction or pleasure in the man's passing is likely as petty or more than what they claim Zabel was.

    Please don't make yourself look dumb.
