A bit of professional news. I’ve been fortunate to call ESPN home for the last decade. (Damn…when did I get so old?!) For little Nicole, it was a dream just to walk in the door. In reality, it’s been my home, my chosen family, stability, and a pretty decent career. I’m THRILLED to sign on for at least a couple more years….and I am equally excited to add the Indianapolis 500 as an assignment. Full circle in so many ways.
