We all deal with tragedy in our own way, and Zach Klein, sports director for WSB-TV in Atlanta, decided to honor the late Robin Williams by working in references to 22 of his movies in that night's sportscast. Some flow better than others, but they're all right there, from "Mork & Mindy" to "Hook" to "One Hour Photo," if you listen closely enough.

"Honestly, I just wanted to do something to show my appreciating for the greatness that was Robin Williams," Klein later said. "It was a hard day for so many and I thought a subtle tribute to a man many loved and admired was the least I could do."
