Do you know this man? His name is John Marvel, and he was vice president and executive editor of ESPN.com until very, very recently. But now the Bristol folks have canned him/asked him to resign, and a reliable tipster tells us it's because of what they're calling a "road rage incident in the ESPN parking lot." We're not sure what that means, but, well, we're curious. (We hope he hijacked something that belongs to Jackpot Jay. Just because.)
Those who have worked with Marvel say he has been known to be, well, competitive, perhaps even fiery or veering toward rage in the past, particularly those who have played basketball with him. But hey, don't mock him: He's now in need of a job.

(Update: A few tipsters have written in to say that Marvel had recently been demoted from executive editor after some similar incidents. He had been helping with the site's weekend E Ticket, which encouraged us to watch an 18-year-old boy interview O.J. Simpson, which gave us the hot scoop that he had not, in fact, killed his wife.)
