Erin Andrews of ESPN was in Columbus tonight to take in the game between Columbus and Colorado.
At the end of the video, Erin wishes the NHL was on ESPN.
from Tom Jones of the St. Peterburg Times via Scripps News,
Q: Let’s talk about your career. How much did former Tampa Bay Lightning coach John Tortorella (the coach when Andrews started with the NHL team) influence your career?
(Erin Andrews) A: “Torts’ has meant so much to me in my life and in my career. It was clearly a situation where he didn’t want a 22-year-old around that team, nor should he have. He was trying to turn around the worst team in the league. And here’s this 22-year-old kid right out of school traveling on the bus, at the hotel, at all the practices.
But he taught me so much about how to prepare, how you should act as a professional, how to ask questions. I mean, if you weren’t prepared, a guy like that could be tough to deal with. (Laughs) And he taught me to have no fear. He taught me how to prepare and jump right in. He was so good and respectful to me, and he didn’t have to be. Everybody with the Lightning was like that.
more but not much more hockey talk…
Truthfully, with all the people that now have access to locker rooms, I am surprised we have not seen more of this.
I imagine it is a huge concern for anyone in the public eye and the threat always exists.
