Scott Gray Sports Commentary: How Could We Wonder Why?

Where to go. Today it’s a definite quandary, with two issues that beg for comment, the first close to home.

Sean McDonough is the best play-by-play man in America. A veteran of several networks, McDonough, currently in the employ of ESPN, has called some of the biggest events in the world of sports, from the World Series to the major college football bowl games.

Scott Gray Sports Commentary: When Everyone Knows Who You Are

An old friend from high school who went to work for our home town police department once told me a story from his days on cruiser patrol. A car screeched out of a supermarket parking lot, through on coming traffic from both directions and tore down the street.

Scott Gray Sports Commentary: What Did You Think Happened?
