So you’re a sports fanatic but one night you miss a game, you have no choice but to wait out the score. What do you do? The answer is easy; you hook yourself up with ESPN. This is the sports obsessed network that will give any sport fanatic exactly what they need. But how did ESPN start? Well, instead of watching ESPN, why not try something different and listen to the audio book ESPN: Those Guys Have All The Fun by James Andrew Miller and Tom Shales. Enter the world of ESPN and find out how a “PR man, an oil company slickster, and a lot of sports nuts created ESPN.”
Of course in the 1980s, when ESPN first came to be, the concept of a 24-hour sports channel seemed unrealistic and even a bit radical. But the sports-obsessed mind of Bill Rasmussen and his son turned their dream into a reality, when they decided to go the entrepreneurial route to ensure a cable channel was devoted entirely to sports.
Throughout the audio book, you’ll find plenty of juicy gossip about your favorite SportsCenter anchors and even have a little fun going behind-the-scenes with all sorts of characters you’ve probably grown up to love.
