Visit To ESPN In Bristol, CT
Here are some pics from my visit to the main ESPN headquarters in Bristol, CT. One ESPN employee is much taller than I thought.
The trip to Bristol, CT yesterday (April 7th) couldn’t have been better. It was great to take a tour and see the facilities. I got to meet Skip Bayless who was very nice in person. I also introduced myself to Jay Feely who hosted “First Take” that day.
We talked to ESPN Radio personalities Doug Gottlieb and Freddie Coleman. We stopped by the SportsCenter set and saw Linda Cohn and the notably tall John Buccigross. Buchy has got to be at least 6’3″. That’s my guess. Buchy seemed very cool and acknowledged our presence just seconds before going on.
We were able to meet with some of the brains behind the radio operation: Scott Masteller, Pete Gianesini, and Robyn Remick among others. I also saw Urban Meyer and Andre Ware on campus. It was a great day.
The only thing that would’ve made the trip better would have been meeting the lovely Erin Andrews or Jenn Brown. Although that didn’t happen, the visit was still very inspirational and very helpful.
