In case you missed them, my latest ESPNTheMag.com reports …
A day after I returned home from the Winter X Games (my only day home before leaving for the Super Bowl) Australian surfer Sally Fitzgibbons, 18, stopped in Los Angeles for a day on her way home to Oz. I spent the afternoon with her in Venice—her first day in Venice. Check it out here.
While in Tampa, I spent a morning flying to Auburndale on an experimental sea plane with Red Bull’s newest athlete, New Orleans running back Reggie Bush. The next day, Gatorade announced its first major break into action sports. I wrote about the blurring of action and mainstream sports here.
Two days after watching her hometown Steelers win their sixth Super Bowl, freestyle skier Kristi Leskinen appeared on ESPN’s NASCAR Now to kick off their celebrity fantasy league. I wrote about Kristi’s newest Challenge in this week’s Action Sports Report here.
