In New England it's very tough to constantly watch the like's of every big named sport's station across the globe, promote the like's of LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and Kobe Bryant. Not that we have an issue with it. They are all marketable, the best player's in the their sport arguably, and I have no problem with it.

I'm glad he was caught, I'm glad there is an on-air personality, other then place's like Comcast Sportsnet New England, NESN, etc. on a station like ESPN that care's about a team in New England.
