Viva Las Vegas!
We’re heading out to the desert tomorrow, so this week’s show gets an early release.
We talk with Mike Tollin, director of ESPN 30 For 30 documentary Small Potatoes: Who Killed the USFL.
Tollin’s resume also includes sports classics Ready to Rumble (executive producer), Varsity Blues (producer) and Lucas favorite, Summer Catch (producer).
We talk about the one-man firestorm Mike caused in Trump Towers recently, as well as his distinction as the USFL’s equivalent to NFL Films, the ongoing relationships he has with primary figures and players associated with the league and other aspects of his distinguished career.
On Thursday, Tollin will be co-hosting the Blogs With Balls/BlogWorld Expo “ESPN Zone 30 For 30 VIP After Party” with ESPN.com editor-in-chief Rob King. That event will feature a sneak peak of “Small Potatoes” and will include dinner and an open bar courtesy of Diageo Liquors. If you are going to BwB/BWE and haven’t already RSVP’d, do so soon as space is quickly filling.
