re: ESPN Layoffs Today: "Around 50 names you will recognize" - Keys Open Doors
Fwiw, 37/54 of the laid off are white men. I'm sure this fact will be used numerous ways....

re: ESPN Layoffs Today: "Around 50 names you will recognize" - Keys Open Doors
I bet Stark and McMurphy made over 300K. Dilfer and Kannell probably close to 7 figures, but I bet a lot of them made less than 120K a year. I believe Simmons is about as highly paid as anyone at 10 million right now (and HBO is hating that contract), and I heard Gruden makes around 5....

re: Anybody been to Tokyo, Japan - Keys Open Doors
Just came back. Did 3.5 days in Tokyo and 3 in Kyoto and thought that was perfect. In Tokyo, you should definitely go to Ginza, the Tokyo Station area, Roppongi Hills, and Harajuku. Since you have kids, the area around the Tokyo Dome could be a nice change of pace. Batting cages, bowling alley...

One of the best takes on today's ESPN layoffs - Keys Open Doors
[link=(http://deadspin.com/espns-latest-layoffs-are-just-a-way-to-buy-time-1794678629)]LINK[/link] I know Deadspin has an anti-ESPN agenda and is not everyone's cup of tea, but this is very non-polemic, reasonable stuff. [quote]The big ESPN layoffs that everyone knew were coming finally arrive...

re: ESPN Layoffs Today: "Around 50 names you will recognize" - Keys Open Doors
Fwiw, I think the outrage among posters who think there are huge preferences for women and minorities is overblown. That being said, I doubt ESPN is 80 percent white males, at least when it comes to journalists and TV personalities. Probably around that behind the scenes....

re: ESPN Layoffs Today: "Around 50 names you will recognize" - Keys Open Doors
If I was ESPN, I wouldn't be firing 12 regional reporters making 70K a year. I would fire people making more than a million a year who aren't worth that amount. I would be firing former coaches and athletes almost exclusively....

re: ESPN Layoffs Today: "Around 50 names you will recognize" - Keys Open Doors
Baseball and hockey seem to be the ones hit the hardest, along with college football (although they had a huge roster to work with). Biggest names for me have been Jim Bowden, Jayson Stark, Danny Kannell, Trent Dilfer, Dana O'Neill, Brett McMurphy, and Ed Werder...

re: ESPN Layoffs Today: "Around 50 names you will recognize" - Keys Open Doors
Yeah, I think these are all names we will recognize. Obviously very few of us know all of these people but it seems like at least a couple of people know every single name that has been let go. I don't watch hockey but the hockey fans here seemed to like the guys who were let go. Meanwhile no o...

re: 1 night in Raleigh/Durham May 13 - Keys Open Doors
Angus Barn is a very good steakhouse. Honestly, what matters is where your cousin is graduating from. The answer is totally different if it's UNC or NC State or Duke. Different quality bars and restaurants close to each. UNC and Duke are much closer to each other than NC State, btw....

Mike L. Goodman @TheM_L_G Today's gonna suck for a lot of people at ESPN. It doesn't seem like too much to ask to remember that those people are in fact people. Follow Mike L. Goodman @TheM_L_G And hey, it turns out one of those people is me. Loved my time at ESPN, and now it's time to figure ...
