Style Points: SportsCenter’s Negandhi gets assist from Fitzgerald’s stylist

Editor’s note: Here’s another installment of Style Points, a glimpse inside ESPN fashion. To see a previous episode, click here.

On their recent visit to Bristol, Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald and Arturo Castañeda, his personal stylist, proved to be great at improvising.

As we documented on Front Row two weeks ago, Fitzgerald broke ranks from his ESPN Car Wash schedule to have a surprise reunion with NFL analyst Matt Williamson. Old chums during Fitzgerald’s playing days at the University of Pittsburgh, the pair had not seen each other in more than eight years but were reunited in the ESPN Radio studios.

Well, before a scheduled Fitzgerald SportsCenter interview with Kevin Negandhi, stylist Castañeda noticed something a little astray in the anchor’s look. Check out the video above for a behind-the-scenes look.

Perhaps it was fate: In the spring, Fitzgerald and Castañeda were featured on The NOC YouTube channel. As Fitzgerald is trying on outfits, “the ESPN knot” — as Castañeda calls it — gets an adjustment.
