My wife says without sports and politics, I wouldn't have a life. She's right. I'm a junkie...and proud of it. I joined ESPN in 1998 and since then, it's been a great experience managing PR and communications for a range of ESPN initiatives and properties, including, major league soccer, NFL, and award-winning news and information programing such as SportsCenter and E:60. Working at ESPN, I sometimes relive the passion I often felt as a boy each time I took to the patched fields, sandy lots and unpaved streets of home in Eastern Nigeria to play soccer (“futbol”). With no adult supervision on those futbol fields of my youth, I learned it was best to play with teammates who’d have your back, work hard, play fair, win with magnanimity, and lose with humility. Thirty-plus years later, I’ve found the same endearing qualities among most ESPNers, which makes my role as an advocate for ESPN a no-brainer. If you’re so inclined, my Twitter handle is @MacN_ESPN.
