Pat MARSDEN, Broadcaster: (1936-2006)
Canadian Football League play-by-play specialist and radio host lived life large. He stiffed a Nevada casino over a gambling debt, took a swing at his boss and was bailed out of jail by Brian MULRONEY
By James CHRISTIE with files from William HOUSTON, Page S9
It was part of Pat MARSDEN's profession, as a caller of football play-by-plays and a radio host, to be a storyteller. But the Ottawa-born broadcast star didn't just tell entertaining tales he often starred in them.
Citing his Irish heritage, Mr. MARSDEN was alternately provocative, funny, obstinate, sentimental, pugnacious and -- until he stopped imbibing in recent years -- always willing to buy an adversary a drink while he hammered away with his opinions. "He had to get out of here because he couldn't get a rum and coke," his wife, T.A. MARSDEN, told radio station The Fan 590 yesterday morning from Sunnybrook Hospital, minutes after his death.
An eight-year stint as co-host of The Fan morning show was the last stop in a career of more than four decades behind the microphone or in front of the camera. Mr. MARSDEN even parodied sports broadcasters as a television actor, sporting a slicked-down comb-over, a loud plaid jacket and talking in exaggerated tones as he interviewed calamity-prone stuntman Super Dave Osborne (a.k.a. Bob Einstein) in a 1992 series.
He is best known for his play-by-play coverage of the Canadian Football League telecasts and Grey Cup championships in the 1970s and 1980s. He also worked as host of the 1972 Canada-Soviet Union hockey summit series telecasts. His longest stint was 19 years with CTV's Toronto flagship station CFTO, where he had a reputation for marching to his own beat. In a 1986 Globe and Mail interview, Mr. MARSDEN said bluntly, "Nobody tells me what to do and nobody tells me what to say, on or off the air. I developed a thick skin a long time ago and I don't care how people would like me to act. I won't be dull and I'll always have self respect." He declared that he would always be himself.
"He did it his own way," said long-time colleague Fergie Olver, who knew Mr. MARSDEN could make connections at the high and low ends of the social scale. "He was the only guy who was thrown in jail in Regina on a Friday night, and then he went to Montreal where he was thrown in jail again, and [former prime minister] Brian MULRONEY bailed him out."
Indeed, when Mr. MARSDEN signed off for the last time in May of 2004, Mr. MULRONEY phoned the station from Europe to congratulate him on his career.
Pat MARSDEN was an Ottawa native who started a career in radio as director of CKOY. He went on to become the long-time sports director of CFTO, returning to radio at CFRB after a stormy exchange with CFTO news and public-affairs vice-president Ted STEUBING over a technical problem. Mr. MARSDEN reportedly lunged across Mr. STEUBING's desk to scuffle with the boss.
He also worked with Bill Watters on TSN's The Sports Page. "Whenever I was with him, it would be 30 seconds and I'd either be laughing at me or laughing at him, or with him," said Mr. Watters, who had seen the lighter side of the broadcaster.
After Mr. MARSDEN retired and moved to Florida, Fan 590 executives sought him out in 1994 to fight a desperate ratings battle for Toronto listeners. He'd been out of the market some eight years, but The Fan program director Nelson MILLMAN said the station had pursued him to gain credibility for a new format.
"We'd come through two seasons of labour stoppages in sports&hellip we were floundering. We had Bob McCOWN in the afternoons and we needed to fix the morning show. Pat gave us some stability in 1994 and 1995. He was the right guy in the right place at the right time. He was a character like no other and he represented sport in this town."
At The Fan, Mr. MARSDEN at first paired with the hip and younger John DERRINGER. Both men were from the right side of the political spectrum, both had ties to the United States and an antipathy for prime minister Jean Chrétien.
Yet their chemistry was not great. Mr. MARSDEN had come from an era of radio crooners and crop reports, while Mr. DERRINGER from a culture of rock radio. There was more dissonance than charm in their old-young mix and Mr. DERRINGER ultimately departed. He was replaced by Don LANDRY, another young foil for Mr. MARSDEN.
"Pat and Don were much more opposites politically and in outlook toward life," said Mr. MILLMAN. " That made for better chemistry than someone who often agreed with Pat's political outlook. When sparks fly, that's entertainment."
Mr. LANDRY's comedic aptitude lightened the mood and ratings began to climb for an odd couple that could laugh at each other and at themselves. "Half the people loved it, half asked me 'why do you pick on Pat so much, '? Mr. LANDRY said. "Good chemistry or bad chemistry is a question of taste, but he was loved. By now, he's probably found Pierre Trudeau and is bawling him out for what he did as prime minister."
That scenario would be a stretch of the imagination. Mr. MARSDEN and Mr. Trudeau wouldn't fit in each other's version of heaven. Hell, possibly.
"Nobody's perfect, but nobody wore his imperfection as well as Pat MARSDEN," Mr. DERRINGER said. "The smile, the laugh, the ability to keep things on an even keel was always an inspiration."
Mr. MARSDEN commuted from his Florida home for the first few years of his Fan 590 job, rooming in Toronto weekdays and flying home weekends to the United States, always returning with gripes about Canadian gasoline prices, the non-functioning escalators at Pearson Airport and former Mr. Chretien's lack of support for U. S foreign policy. Later, Mr. MARSDEN and his family eventually moved back to Toronto.
The station opted not to renew his contract in May 2004. Rogers Communications, which owns the station, had the option of picking up three more years on a five-year pact that has been paying him $300,000 annually, but declined. They paid him off with six months remaining in his 2004 contract and Pat MARSDEN didn't complain.
"Getting up at 4 o'clock is so tiring, you can't function properly. I'm not at all disappointed.
"If they don't want you, they don't want you. I'm finished with the business. It's like you don't matter any more. That's fine. No use worrying about it. You take what comes along in life.'"
Mr. MARSDEN lived life large, enjoyed a party, loved his rum and his outings to casinos. In 1981, he managed to borrow $30,000 (U.S.) from the owners of the casino at The Dunes Las Vegas hotel in Nevada and signed a series of markers when his money ran out. He then left three cheques, two of them postdated. Back in Toronto, he stopped payment on the latter pair. The casino owners took him to an Ontario District Court -- and lost. Judge James TROTTER said that Nevada's gambling laws and demand for payment were "unenforceable in Ontario," and that Mr. MARSDEN's cheques were an "illegal consideration" under Ontario's Gaming Act.
Gambler though he was, Mr. MARSDEN knew he had no chance of beating cancer. He was diagnosed after visiting his doctor about a pain in his lower back. Lung cancer was found and it had spread into his bones. He had been a smoker since a young child "but I have no regrets. I'm 69 and I've had a good life with lots of laughs and lots of Friends. Lots of great memories."
"I started smoking when I was four years old," he once said in an interview with The Globe and Mail's William HOUSON. " Somebody said to me, 'Christ, where the hell did you grow up, in Mississippi?' No, but I had an old uncle who thought it was hilarious, as he and his pals sat around the kitchen table having a beer, if I would come in and have a smoke with them. That's when I started. I never quit."
While in hospital, he received phone calls from generations of broadcast colleagues and sports reporters. He was visited by Leo Cahill (former Toronto Argonauts coach), and Scotty Bowman (retired National Hockey League coach) and by Brian KILREA, the long-time coach of the major-junior 67's hockey team in Ottawa, where Mr. MARSDEN grew up.
"The only thing I can say is, don't feel sorry for me," he said. "I've had a terrific life and a terrific wife and great children, and I'm delighted with the way my life has gone.
"I would have liked for it to have been a little longer, but, you know, you reap what you sow."
Pat MARSDEN was born in Ottawa, November 8, 1936, and died of lung cancer in Toronto yesterday. He leaves his wife, T.A., daughter Taylor, son Connor, and three grown children from his first marriage: Mike, Patti-Lee, and Ruth Mary.

Owen Sound doctors on the move
Three going from family practices to hospital. Others, including nurse practitioner may help fill the gap.
By Jonathon JACKSON, Thursday, March 30, 2006
Three family doctors in Owen Sound have given up or will soon leave their practices, choosing to work exclusively at the city hospital.
Dr. Ann FLEMING/FLEMMING has reportedly already made the switch and plans to work solely in the emergency department, where she will soon be joined by Doctor Cornelius VAN ZYL. Doctor Brendan MULROY will also leave family medicine for an undisclosed role at the hospital.
But Doctor Carolyn TISHER has moved to town and established a practice in the Eastview Professional Building, where she'll assume at least some of VAN ZYL's patients.
And Sonja BRUIN, a primary care nurse practitioner, has opened a practice at two locations in Owen Sound. She's working with Dr. Hilli HUFF in the Medical Arts Building on Alpha Street and with Doctor Anne-Louise McARTHUR in the Greystone office building on 8th Street East.
Coincidentally or not, FLEMING/FLEMMING and HUFF shared office space, as do MULROY and McARTHUR.
Sharon WINEGARDEN, a physician recruitment officer with Grey Bruce Health Services, said another doctor may soon arrive to replace FLEMING/FLEMMING but nothing is definite, including the percentage of FLEMING/FLEMMING's patients she'd be willing to assume.
“As far as I know, there is one that's coming but she hasn't signed anything yet,” WINEGARDEN said.
MULROY had been acting as a spokesperson for a family health team in Owen Sound. Plans for that team are still moving ahead, albeit slowly, according to Doctor Cam TWEEDIE, who is the team's lead physician.
He said organizers received a development grant earlier this month from the provincial Ministry of Health and have requested an operational plan be submitted by April 30.
“We've got consultants working on this and we're working with community groups to put together some programs,” TWEEDIE said.
The province received more than 200 applications last year after announcing the concept of family health teams in an effort to ease the strain on hospital emergency wards.
The teams are to include physicians in group practice with other health care workers like nurse practitioners, dietitians and social workers and are to provide regular office care combined with after-hours backup.
Owen Sound was one of 52 successful communities when the first teams were identified last spring, but details were vague as to how the province would fund and organize the teams.
TWEEDIE said more information has trickled down since then, but many things remain unclear.
“It's homegrown here,” he said of his expectations for the health team's makeup.
“They've sort of told us, you develop the programs that you feel are necessary for the area, then give us the business plan. I guess it'll be up to them whether they'll fund those programs or not.
“We're just going to apply for what we think we need and what we think we can provide in a reasonable structure that we can handle here in town. If the ministry takes it, good. If they don't, well, we tried.&rdquo
He wouldn't discuss the amount of the development grant or the types of programs being considered, saying he'd rather announce the accepted structure after the province has signed off on it.
But he did acknowledge the difficulty of trying to piece things together considering it's never been done before and there are no templates to follow.
“There hasn't been a family health team approved in its entirety yet in the province,” TWEEDIE said, noting there also doesn't seem to be a timeline past the April 30 operational plan deadline. “It could be a number of months before we hear back from them on that.&rdquo
Health Minister George Smitherman and Doctor Jim McLEAN, the ministry's primary care lead, visited Owen Sound together in April 2005 to talk about the health teams.
McLEAN said then that it would take about two years to get the local team up and running.

Your contributions of food, your donations to the Grey Bruce Health Centre, the Salvation Army and the Cancer Society, your visits, your cards, your flowers and your prayers were appreciated more than words can express. To all of the staff and residents of John Joseph Place, especially her Friends Millie, Percy, Ed, Eleanor and Agnes - thank you. Mom enjoyed her time there and talked often of the good Friends she had made. She loved all of the workers - no wonder, they treated her like their own mother. To the nurses on the 4th floor of Grey Bruce Regional Health Centre - your kindness and understanding will not be forgotten. It made the difficult time for the family easier to bear. Doctor MULROY - your compassion and empathy was much appreciated. To Doctor Edwin GAVILLER - for 40 years you took good care of our Mom. She thought of you as a good friend and trusted you implicitly. Your kindness and caring will always be remembered and appreciated by the family. Thanks to Doctor WHITTLE for your seven years of caring for Mom and humouring her when necessary. Thank you to Breckenridge Ashcrott Funeral Home and Rev. SCHMIDT for your assistance with the funeral service.
When I must leave you for a little while
Please do not grieve and shed wild tears
And hug the sorrow to you through the years
But start out bravely with a gallant smile
And for my sake and in my name
Live on and do all things the same
Feed not your loneliness on empty days
Fill each waking hour in useful ways
Reach out your hand in comfort and cheer
And I in return will comfort you and hold you near
And never, never be afraid to die
For I a.m. waiting for you in the sky
- Jack, Sarilee, Ted, Peg and Jimmy
