Bud Greenspan, award-winning filmmaker, writer, character and, arguably, the world's No. 1 fan of the Olympics, has died. He was 84. Greenspan died Christmas Day at his home in New York City, his companion Nancy Beffa said. He had Parkinson's disease. Easily recognizable by his trademarks - big, black-rimmed glasses pushed up on his shaven head, a pipe and, depending on the season, a beige corduroy sport coat over a black turtleneck or a safari jacket over a polo shirt - Greenspan earned eight Emmy awards, a Peabody and generally high praise for his Cappy Productions films, most of which were Olympic documentaries.
