I always enjoyed his commentary as almost all of them were dead on. 60 Minutes just isn't the same without Andy.

R.I.P., Andy. I sure miss his commentary each week. I had been watching him since I was a teenager and read a lot of his WWII dispatches as a history buff.

Andy was the only good thing to do with 60 Minutes. Haven't watched 60 Minutes in years. Always an agenda to push...

You mean how Andy Schleck got elevated to the TdF win in 2010 because Contador got stripped?
