Not surprisingly, the news Thursday night of the death of sportscasting legend Dick Enberg hit the sports world hard.

The tributes are pouring in for Enberg, who died at his home in La Jolla at the age of 82.

The mourners include Tom Brokaw, Vin Scully, Chris Evert, Jim Boeheim, Mike Piazza, Ted Leitner, and, yes — Cher.


And President Donald Trump replied to Cher’s tweet with one word: SAD.
