Scary news out of Kansas City: NFL Films president Steve Sabol was hospitalized Monday night, according to the NFL.

Sabol, 68, was in Kansas City at the 101 Awards to accept the Lamar Hunt Award on behalf of NFL Films when, according to NFL.com, he suffered a seizure.

He was "taken to a hospital, underwent a series of tests over the weekend and was awake and alert Monday." There is some slightly good news, however: according to multiple reports, Sabol is now listed in "stable" condition.

Sabol is, for many people in a younger generation of football fans, almost the "voice of football." While he doesn't necessarily announce games, much of the game's history is narrated with his rich, distinctive voice.

His father, Ed, was recently selected for the NFL Hall of Fame and founded NFL Films.

Steve Sabol once concocted the story that he was really a renowned high school football player from Possum Trot, Tennessee and used the moniker, Steve "Sudden Death" Sabol since he was such a fierce tackler.  He said the kids wore tee-shirts saying, "I'm a little Possum Trotter."  Steve still is a genius in his own sphere of endeavor, and I look forward to his next creative work.  Good health to you amigo, From a fellow Possum Trotter.

 As a retired TV Sports columnist I have had the pleasure of knowing and meeting with both Steve and father Ed Sabol for close to three decades, and hardly anyone deserves more credit for the growth and continuing popularity of the NFL than these two Philadelphians through their treasured NFL Films. Especially to the millions of fans who learned of the specialness of the NFL through the cameras and microphones of NFL Films that took them down to the field and into the game before the expansion of live television coverage.
   One of my fondest memories is an NFL Films clip of coach Jerry Glanville pulling an official over and telling him, ``Any more calls like that and for you NFL will stand for, `Not for long.' '' Also, Hank Stram giving an official static for some time, then quickly stepping back off the field and going silent when the official must have told him, ``Anymore of that I'll call a penalty of you.''
  Steve Sabol has been one of the the most generous people in the business in spending his time to teach me how NFL Films shows are produced.
   My thoughts and prayers go out to Steve for a quick and thorough recovery.
   I must add, though, that John Facenda was the long-time famous voice of NFL Films while Ed and Steve Sabol provided the planning for the shows and the first-rate production.

Um, wasn't it John Facenda with the, "rich, distinctive voice"?
