The sports broadcasters I most admire are Brent Musburger and Howard Cosell. I got into the business because of Cosell and Musburger. Cosell hated the jockocracy and former players getting the top jobs with no experience, and I loved his view on that.
My favorite team is whoever I bet on.
The best athlete I've seen play in person is Randy Moss, the most gifted wide receiver ever.
My worst betting beat was on the Ohio State-Northwestern game in 2013. The Buckeyes recovered a fumbled lateral for a TD on the last play of the game. Northwestern, a 6½-point underdog, lost 40-30.
My best and biggest bet was on Floyd Mayweather Jr. over Canelo Alvarez in 2013.
On my first day in Vegas, I watched spin after spin as red came up 21 times in a row on roulette.
