It all started at a 5,000-watt radio station in Fresno, Calif….no, wait, that’s Ted Baxter, and if you understand the reference you also know Paul McCartney was in a group before Wings and that being a Red Sox fan meant pain, anguish and suffering. Kids today have it so easy – the Patriots win, the Celtics win, the Sox win. It’s like they all have Tiger Blood. And me? In 1983, I was sorting mail and driving Dick Vitale to the airport. Now, well, I don’t. But if it has to do with ESPN Content Development, ESPN Films, the ESPYs, ESPN The Magazine, consumer products, ESPN Books or X Games, I know the answer. Or know someone who does.
