Tuesday, Feb. 24, 2004. Rush hour. Manhattan, coming in from Jersey. Skies threatening, cheerless, grey. My kind of day. Why? Because it's the day God sent to us.
I'm driving in to tape intros for a new ESPN show called "Timeless."
Producer Al Szymanski has already shot nine show segments about the off-beat, the underplayed (and sometimes even the overplayed) people and events in sports -- whatever has the rare element of lasting consequences that makes a thing "Timeless."
