Dan talked about his pre-sports career on today’s show. He said out of college he was mowing greens at the Jack Nicklaus golf course, doing news at a rock station and doing part-time TV work. Then he was up for a sports TV job and lost out to a really good looking guy named Ken.

Later, he went on to CNN and did Headline Sports, which did not stop him from full-on bragging about his TV job. A few years later, he moved on to ESPN and we all know what happened next … a media empire was born.
