By now, most of you probably know that on late Wednesday night, I made my first ever appearance on national TV, on the new ESPNU show UNITE, where I talked a bit about the second weekend of the college football season. It was a truly flattering and humbling experience; not only to appear on the show, but to be asked in the first place.
The show, which just launched last week, is hosted by former Florida State quarterback Danny Kannell (who I also had on my podcast yesterday), comedian Reese Watters and esteemed TV personality Marianela Pereyra and kind of has a “Sports Nation” meets college kind of feel to it. It’s ESPN’s first venture into late-night television and definitely has a more laid-back, less “analytical” vibe than most shows on the network.
Regardless, I was on Wednesday for a quick spot to discuss Week 2 of the college football season. The hosts and I chatted on Texas A&M-Florida, Georgia-Missouri and why Air Force could upset Michigan. It was a lot of fun, and I hope to do it again soon.
Also, I did want to make one additional, quick announcement and say that I cannot thank everyone enough for the support last evening. From the time I announced I’d be on the show, all the way through this morning, the amount of tweets, texts and phone calls congratulating me, and telling me “good job” have been simply overwhelming. I’ve never felt more loved, and my work has never felt more appreciated than it does right now. As humbled as I was by being on the show, I was twice as humbled by all the love you guys and gals showed me.
So thank you to all of you, and hopefully this is just the first of many opportunities like this with UNITE and ESPNU.no comments
