So today is the first day in at least a decade that ESPN Zone in Times Square is shuttered, in addition to five others. Fan reactions differ on the closing. Personally, I’m not particularly going to miss it – I don’t eat hamburgers, particularly 12 dollar ones – though it will be strange to pass through Times Square and not see it. Others have a more nostalgic view and will be remiss to see it gone.
Tat said, I do have one favorite moment when I think of ESPN Zone, which I’ve alluded to briefly, and it shows just how different things are a decade later.
Today we mourn the passing of a truly exemplary leader. John Wooden is undeniably one of the greatest, if not the single greatest, coaches in the history of sports. He will be sorely missed. We extend our condolences to his family and offer a few of our favorite John Wooden quotes in his honor:
“Never mistake activity for achievement.” – John Wooden
“If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?” – John Wooden
“Winning takes talent, to repeat takes character.” – John Wooden
