Dolphin leads crowd at fair

August 23, 2011 - Bennet Goldstein
University of Iowa sports radio announcer Gary Dolphin is battling prostate cancer but vows to be ready for the opening of the football season in less than two weeks.

You would think the last place he wanted to be Sunday was surrounded by thousands of people at the Iowa State Fair. But there he was wearing Hawkeye colors as emcee in a sea of red shirts as the crowd set the world record for the number of people in a "Stop, Drop and Roll."

Dolphin looked spry as he climbed on a fire truck at one point prior to the roll. He said the roll was the most amazing thing he's seen since the Adrian Clayborn punt block and touchdown against Penn State. He even belted his trademark "Touchdown Iowa" after the roll was complete.

My hat's off to Dolphin for coming out to the event to liven up he crowd amid other things going on in his life.
