ESPN’s Barry Melrose Tells Story of How He Wound Up Living In Glens Falls [AUDIO]
ESPN's Barry Melrose sat down with "Armen and Levack" and explained how he winded up choosing Glens Falls as a place to live in the spring and summer.
"It sort of chose me," Melrose said, on 104.5 The Team. "Detroit sent me down in my illustriousness career in the minors. They sent me to this place called Glens Falls, New York. They were called the Adirondack Red Wings, I didn’t even know there was a town called Glens Falls.
"It was a lady driver and she said, ‘Are you sure you want to go there? That’s a long way.” I told her, ‘Go ahead.’ So she started driving and it started snowing, and she kept driving and it kept snowing. I finally saw a sign that said, 'South Glens Falls'."
We got into Glens Falls and she took me to the Queensbury Hotel and I called my wife and I said, ‘You ain’t going to believe where we’re at.’ I thought we were in the worst place in the world and found out it’s a place we love and a place we’ll live the rest of our life.
