Beth Mowins on calling NFL Games, Tim Howard to be an analyst for EPL

si.com — It's not every day you get a phone call out of the blue from a National Football League team, but that's exactly what happened this spring when Vittorio De Bartolo, the executive producer of broadcasting for the Oakland Raiders, tracked down ESPN broadcaster Beth Mowins while Mowins was on assignment calling the NCAA women's softball tournament.

More on Colin Cowherd's ESPN removal; Ryen Russillo stays

si.com — Last week that Ryen Russillo confirmed on his Twitter feed that he had re-signed with ESPN, a welcome move in these parts. I've written often how much respect I had for the show he and Scott Van Pelt did for ESPN Radio-not only were they authentic, they didn't toke the easy drug of lowest common denominator sports talk.
