    Oh, this is so sad. He did such a great job with his Olympic profiles each time around.

    RIP, Bud. You will be missed.

    I looked forward to his films as much as the Olympics themselves.

    My paper's obit mentions that his 2010 Vancouver Oly film should be released shortly. It think, though that it has been some years since his new Oly films were shown here.

    Thanks for the link, Fergus - I record and watch every one of Greenspan's sport and Olympic documentaries.

    They make me appreciate every athlete, from sports I've barely heard of or cared about before.

    I have always looked forward to his documentaries, almost as much as the Olympics themselves.

    This just makes me even more upset that Directv doesn't have Universal Sports! :angryfire

    I watched it too and really enjoyed it. I've heard about Bud's films for a long time but never got a chance to watch them. I hope to check out most of them during this run on Universal Sports. He will be missed for sure but what amazing memories he's left behind with his Olympic films. RIP :(
