“So I thought it was the right time, I felt like in my life and in my profession to move past just the black tank top every day and maybe wear a t-shirt. So here we are.

College football fans have spoken, and Pat McAfee has taken their words to heart and taken action.
In an appearance on Get Up on ESPN on Thursday, host Mike Greenberg noticed McAfee wasn’t rocking his signature look consisting of a black tank top.
McAfee pointed out that it was some vocal College GameDay fans on social media that helped him make the decision to instead rock a plain t-shirt. It was a move that had been in the works for a couple months now.
“I have been reminded in my mentions by these college football fans, they do all appear to be older white people, that have told me that I am despicable and disgusting on television,” he said. “So I thought it was the right time, I felt like in my life and in my profession to move past just the black tank top every day and maybe wear a t-shirt. So here we are. I’m uncomfortable as you are, but this is the next chapter of me, Greeny.”

Greenberg did jump in and say that as an older white person he was actually a fan of the tank top look. But McAfee wasn’t having it.
“Don’t put me in a blender like that!” he said. “Cause Greeny you know how much we care about your thoughts. Whenever you took like three months off earlier this year we were like, ‘Where the hell is Greeny? Where the hell is Greeny?’ Anything you say goes. You say it, I believe it. So don’t put me in a blender like that, please.”
“But you’re right. It’s a new stage, we’re all gonna have to get used to it,” McAfee added.
Fans will just have to tune in to College GameDay on Saturday to see if McAfee is sticking to his decision or if he’ll go back to the black tank top.

Rachel Nichols exited ESPN nearly ten months ago and now, ahead of the NBA season, she has landed a new job as a host and producer at Showtime Basketball.
SHOWTIME Basketball is part of the Showtime vertical. Some of the SHOWTIME Basketball projects included Kevin Garnett: Anything Is Possible, Passion Play: Russell Westbrook, Quiet Storm: The Ron Artest Story, Shut Up and Dribble, Kobe Bryant’s Muse, Basketball County: In the Water and NYC Point Gods.
“We are delighted to welcome Rachel Nichols to the SHOWTIME Basketball family,” said Brian Dailey, Senior Vice President, Sports Programming & Content, Showtime Networks Inc. “Rachel brings unmatched journalistic credibility, great familiarity with our roster and a work ethic that will take us to another level.”
“I’ve been so fortunate to live my dream job alongside some of the best journalists in the business for more than 25 years, and this new development deal with SHOWTIME Sports gives me my most broad playing field yet,” said Nichols. “They’ve asked me to produce, create and host new sports programming across platforms, working alongside Hall of Famers, multiple guys with championship rings and an uber-creative team behind the camera. We’re going to have so much fun.”
Nichols left ESPN in earlier this year after a private conversation was taped and leaked that including her complaining that ESPN chose Maria Taylor to host the NBA Finals pregame show over her.
She also addressed her exit from ESPN in an interview with the All the Smoke podcast.
“Things got complicated later that season. You all know, it was 2020. We had a pandemic. There was the tragic murder of your friend, George Floyd. There were a lot of difficult conversations with this country looking itself in the face and seeing what had to change, what had to be different. And The New York Times did an expose in July of 2020 on racism at ESPN and the lack of opportunities for people of color. And the executives at ESPN said, I think, about what people would expect, ‘We’d like to give people more opportunities, we’re continuing to grow,’ all of those things.”
“Around that same time, I got a phone call asking me would I step aside for Maria to host the NBA Finals and have me go back to being a sideline reporter. They stressed it was my choice, they weren’t telling me to do this, because it was in my contract. But they were putting a lot of pressure on me. I was being told ‘Well, you’re not a team player.’ Which any woman in business knows is code, right? Women are supposed to be kumbaya, and team players, and helpful, and men are aggressive sharks, and all that? I just felt like ‘Hey, I worked so long, decades for this job. I have done everything that was asked. We put on some great shows leading up to the playoffs. And I wanted a chance to do it.”

Texas Rangers television analyst Tom Grieve is slated to retire at the end of the season.
Grieve has been with the Rangers broadcast team for 28 seasons. Rangers managing partner Tom Schieffer said listening to Grieve was “like going to the game with a friend”.
Grieve worked with Josh Lewin from 2002-2010. Lewin told The Dallas Morning News Grieve “made it so ridiculous easy because he had no ego. He was so accommodating. I was a bull in a china shop, and he was the kindly uncle I didn’t know I needed. He showed me what it was to man up.”
He became a broadcaster after a nine-year MLB career with the Washington Senators, Texas Rangers, New York Mets, and St. Louis Cardinals. He also served as General Manager of the Rangers from 1984-1994. He worked full-time on broadcasts from 1995 through 2017, before splitting duties with C.J. Nitkowski.
