The following is a statement from Redskins owner Daniel M. Snyder on the passing of legendary sports broadcaster and long-time Redskins Welcome Home Luncheon emcee George Michael on Thursday:
"George was the consummate reporter and a valuable friend. I doubt we'll ever again see a sports reporter who was so admired by the people he covered. He loved his family, he loved sports, and he loved his work. His wife Pat and the rest of his family are in my prayers, and in the thoughts of the entire Redskins organization."
