Bulls were among sports teams to honor the late Bob Saget at games Tuesday night


(Audacy) Since Sunday, America has mourned the death of beloved comedian and actor Bob Saget of "Full House" fame. Saget was best known as America’s dad Danny Tanner, and tributes to him have poured in from all directions, including an emotional monologue from late-night host Jimmy Kimmel, who appeared visibly shaken at his friend’s passing.

Saget -- who was also a series regular on "How I Met Your Mother" (he narrated all nine seasons) and the original host of "America’s Funniest Home Videos" -- was honored again Tuesday night across the professional sports landscape, with the Chicago Bulls, Nashville Predators and Columbus Blue Jackets among the teams paying homage to the late sitcom star.

If you attend a sporting event this week, don’t be surprised to hear the Full House theme play during a timeout. Kudos to arena organist Kyle Hankins for going the extra mile during Tuesday night’s game in Nashville.

Investigators are still determining Saget’s cause of death after he was found unresponsive at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando on Sunday afternoon. Saget had headlined the previous night in suburban Jacksonville, performing at the Pondra Veda Concert Hall as the second stop on his “I Don’t Do Negative Comedy Tour.” He was 65.
