I interact with fantasy fans all the time.

Nov 13, 2014 - Taylor Twellman is in it for the long haul with ESPN. The
soccer analyst has signed an eight-year deal with the network to be the
lead analyst on ESPN's soccer coverage. The length of the deal is one of
the longest at the company for a _front-facing talent_.

Name-drop: Twellman and I are grads of the same St. Louis high school,
class of '54 and of '98, resp.

Twellman's *dad* is class of '70.

I'm old. <sigh>
