"With the hot days, it's pretty busy," she said.

My fantasy football follies (08/11/10)
The football season is upon us. Not just the profession ranks, but the beloved fantasy football.

This month marks my 30th year in television. It seems like just yesterday I was nervously standing in front of a camera, not sure which direction to look, unprepared for my segment, babbling away incoherently.
