Look who showed up at the Rose Bowl on Wednesday.
Legendary broadcaster Keith Jackson, who's currently retired, paid a visit to the iconic stadium in Pasadena.
Jackson is one of the most iconic broadcasters of all time, with a resume that includes, among other events: the 1972, 1976, 1980 and 1984 Olympics, countless NBA and NFL games, college basketball tournament finals, golf, auto racing and, of course, college football, which he covered from 1952-2006 for ABC.
Jackson's last broadcast came during one of college football's greatest games: The 2006 national title, famously won by QB Vince Young and Texas over USC at the Rose Bowl.
He is also known for coining the term "Granddaddy of Them All" to describe the Rose Bowl Game, the oldest postseason matchup in college football.
Jackson previously said that the undefeated 1972 USC football team, led by Anthony Davis and Lynn Swann, was "the best football team I ever saw" and that today's broadcasters "talk too damn much."
