Front Row is expanding on “FGF” goodness every Friday as we put our own spin on the segment by highlighting the “good” being done by familiar faces from around ESPN who are helping to make others – and themselves! – feel good. This ongoing series showcases even more ways that ESPN is #OneTeam, signifying how we are all in this together.

One of the regular Friday highlights now ingrained in the noon ET SportsCenter is a segment called “Feel Good Friday.” It’s self-explanatory.

Today, co-anchors Nicole Briscoe and Randy Scott will help a young baseball fan get a special surprise.

This week on Front Row, we hear from Ryan McGee and Anita Marks.

McGee, a longtime writer for and co-host of the SEC Network and ESPN Radio’s Marty & McGee, and his family, have livened up their stay-at-home time during the pandemic with themed nights and home-style film festivals.

“We’ve actually done several film festivals now,” he said. “John Hughes, Spielberg, Hitchcock, Tom Hanks. It’s been awesome.”

McGee, who also covers motorsports, recently contributed to the SportsCenter “Our Stories” series with a feature on an 80-year-old woman who parks cars in her yard for the Indianapolis 500.

In this video, McGee and his daughter Tara have fun with their “80’s” theme.


ESPN sports betting analyst and host Anita Marks continues contributing to Daily Wager as the sports betting show produces digital editions during the sports shutdown. Marks, who lives in New York City, has relieved the stress of quarantine with nature hikes on Sundays along the Palisades Parkway. And as she explains in this video, she and her family of dogs are also happy that many people are adopting pets during the pandemic.
