Munson May Hang Up His Mic

MACON, Ga. (AP) - Larry Munson, the longtime voice of the Georgia Bulldogs, is hinting that he may retire.

The 84-year-old Munson wants to return for his 41st consecutive season of Georgia football but isn't sure his body will allow him to do it.

He tells the Macon Telegraph that he plans to be back in the fall, "but things are just getting worse and worse" healthwise.

Munson, a prostate cancer survivor who also suffers from arthritis and back problems, is known as much for his skeptical nature as his gravelly voice. Two of his closest colleagues expect him to be back in the booth come fall.

But Munson said he's not so sure. His pace has slowed noticeably in the press box in recent years and isn't getting any better.

Georgia starts the 2007 season on September 1st against Oklahoma State at Sanford Stadium, but Munson said he hasn't set a timetable for making a decision about this season.
