Larry Fitzgerald Sr. has covered 28 Super Bowls as a reporter. This will be his toughest title-game assignment yet.

It’s been six years since Larry Fitzgerald’s wife died, and yet when you call his house, it’s her voice on the message machine.

“My sons asked me to keep it,” says Fitzgerald, father of All-Galaxy wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald Jr., of the suddenly Super Bowl-bound Cardinals. “If they were having a tough day, they wanted to be able to call and hear her voice. It’s comforting to them.”
