Week in review

The ESPN Car Wash brings some interesting characters to our Bristol campus every week.

As you’ll see in the video above, Chicago Bulls star Joakim Noah visited Thursday. Michelle Steele interviewed him for a spot on ESPNChicago.com, and Noah really warmed up to a question about his favorite Chicago athletes. He’s a fan of Chicago White Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski and Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane, particularly Kane.

Here’s some highlights from Front Row this week:

Front Row sat down with analyst Steve Nicol the day before the 2011 ESPN Summer Soccer Series match between Liverpool FC and AS Roma at historic Fenway Park. Nicol discussed his bond with Liverpool FC, one of the world’s most-supported football clubs.
