Traffic safety voice Sgt. Tim McCarthy dies
Observer Staff Report | Saturday, October 3, 2020
“We pray for all who loved Tim & join them in celebrating his life,” the tweet said.
McCarthy gave safety messages — featuring a pun — at the end of the third quarter of every Notre Dame home football game for 55 years.
He first started the tradition in 1960 and told his last live pun Sept. 26, 2015. Today, recordings of his messages are still played at home games, which always begin with his famous catchphrase, “May I have your attention, please?”
McCarthy was awarded an honorary monogram by the University in 2013.
