ESPN’s producer Martin Khodabakhshian (real name) sent me an urgent email the night of the Arkansas game, which I needed no excuse to step away from: he wanted some of TWER’s popular, old Punt Bama Punt photos for their upcoming documentary on the Iron Bowl (which we were the first to break news of, by the way, back in August). Credit promised, sure thing.
I spent an hour or so uploading the photos, copying them to his bosses, etc.
I didn’t know if ESPN was actually going to use them or not, but ah, yes, they helped tell the bogus story (here’s the real-er story) of how and why Toomer’s began to be rolled.
Still, it was nice to see the site front and center like that, not as a microscopic afterthought.
