3. Who is the most exciting person who follows you on Twitter?
MC Hammer (@MCHammer)

4. What’s been your strangest exchange on Twitter (with fan or celebrity)?
I had this one person ask me why ESPN doesn’t cover college baseball. I explained to him that we carry the Super Regionals and College World Series. However that didn’t satisfy him and he sent me a couple of Tweets asking the same question. I guess he thought I programmed the network as well. I also get asked a lot of pro wrestling questions. I’m a huge fan, so I know why I get them. But, sometimes the questions make me laugh.

5. Why do you use Twitter?
I like the immediacy of it. I like the fact that I can reach viewers instantly with my thoughts and observations. It’s also great to interact with some of the fans. ESPN fans are so knowledgeable that I enjoy reading their insights about us and the sports we cover.
