Headed for Bristol for the weekend

Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Griffin

All of the weathermen around South Texas are telling us to brace for Hurricane Ike. So what do I do? How about travel to meet with my bosses back at the ESPN Mothership in Connecticut.

Truthfully, this trip was planned long before weather became a concern here. With this being a relatively light week in the conference, we figured it would be the best time for me to check up with them.

So watch for me on various programming platforms over the weekend on television and radio. And I'll be blogging from inside the compound as well. This will likely be the closest I will get to sitting in front of television watching games.

And instead of wearing pajamas like I normally would, I'll be wearing a suit like everybody else.
