- Those Guys Have All the Fun: Inside the World of ESPN (James Andrew Miller & Tom Shales). Not as much dirt as you'd hope but still very compelling. Contains about two paragraphs on the AWA venture.

I've read that book. The first book on ESPN was better. This one is good but it lets some people off easy especially Chris Berman.

And Carrie Ross. Damn she led a secluded life prior to working at ESPN. Think about this. When's the first time you ever saw a marijuana bong? Carrie didn't see one until she worked at ESPN.

What was the name of the other ESPN book? The one that had the dirt in it? If I remember correctly it had a lot of dirt on Mike Tirico and his sexual harassment escapades. I've always been dumbfounded how he's kept his job there for so long. I read it back in the Winter of '04, but can't remember the author, or the name of it. I'd actually like to go back and read it again.

ESPN The Uncensored History by Michael Freeman

The first ESPN book was a good read... I will end up getting the second one eventually.
