Remembering Joe Kelly

History died today.

Baltimore lost Joe Kelly.

Kelly was a historian in the sport of horse racing, a sports writer and a broadcaster.

With no script, no direction, and one camera, he joined Jim McKay for the first broadcast from Pimlico on WMAR-TV.

Kelly says he knew something about horse racing, but nothing about TV when he got in the business.

His funeral will be held at St. Ignatius Catholic Church in Baltimore-his hometown.
