Howe, who died at the age of 88 on Friday, also appeared in a well-known "This is SportsCenter" commercial for ESPN.

The ad ran in 1996 and featured Howe with sports anchor Keith Olbermann. Howe tells Olbermann about respect, as well as some what happened in the "old days," including checking, hitting and more.
