Sadly, NBC and Notre Dame will be missing a familiar face when this season eventually, finally, rolls around.Â Bea Arthur has left the building.
Silky coiffed Bea Arthur waves “So long” to an indifferent crowd of well-wishers.
Soon after the cancellation of her hit sit-com Golden Girls, Arthur found her way to another passion: Notre Dame football.Â Assuming a nom de tÃ©lÃ©vision, Arthur worked alongside former USC quarterback and elf Pat Haden to bring her wry wit, astute observations, and rich, vanilla timbre to homes across America for many years.
We will miss her soulful eyes, her shimmering neck scarves, and the way she’d seamlessly weave a reference to the upcoming episode of “My Name is Earl” into game action.
Gone too soon.Â Gone…. too soon.
