ESPN.com's Tailgate Reporter

So this ESPN.com guy is traveling around the country doing a tailgating video from each MNF site. I'm sitting in the Commissioner of Tailgating's RV, borrowing his juice, and I had to watch this ESPN.com guy interview the commissioner in faux-serious style. There's really nothing like watching Internet video magic being created in front of your eyes, via repeated takes of the same question just to make sure it all goes perfectly.

Am I just jealous because he has a full-time cameraman and a producer and a nickname ("Fitzy") and a deep TV voice? Yeah, I guess. I can't seem to find his ESPN.com videos, either, but maybe I'm not trying hard enough. Anyhow, if you find them, I'm sure they contain pure hilarity.

UPDATE: Thanks to the comment, yup, here's his site. Frankly, I have no doubt that he's actually funny, but it's tough to see the unedited version of these conversations. Plus I was trying to work, you know? Plus, he has a golf cart with a grill attached to the back, which I definitely do not have.

FURTHER UPDATE: Sorry, I'm an idiot, this is all an act, and an extremely funny one at that. See, for example, this video. Anyhow, Fitzy is about to blow up, and I'm gonna be able to say I knew him when, sort of, at least for a few seconds.
