Three cheers for Yahoo! Sports executive editor and my boss Dave Morgan for making Business Week’s list of the 100 Most Influential People in Sports. Read the profile if you like, and know that, yeah, he does look kinda like Jon Stewart, but with a bit of Pete Carroll thrown in. He also doesn’t usually carry the lumber or sit on a purple throne, but it’d be a lot cooler if he did.
In other PR-type news, I’m reprising my role as an amateur talking head on tonight’s Washington Post Live from 5-6 p.m. ET on Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic (DirecTV channel 642). Bog is my co-pilot, and LaVar Arrington will be the in-studio guest, so chances of a Chris Farley Show-esque moment are high to quite high.
