Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany is visiting ESPN's campus in Bristol today and tomorrow, and it appears ESPN brass is doing everything they can to make him feel comfortable.
From an internal memo distributed around Bristol yesterday:
Jim Delany, the Commissioner of the Big Ten Conference will be on the Bristol campus tomorrow and Thursday. It is important for us to show him and his associates that "Bristol is Big Ten Country".
As you have noticed, we have put pennants, banners, and Big Ten flags on campus. In addition, we have had buttons made proclaiming "Bristol is Big Ten Country". These buttons are available at the following locations:
Building 2 Lobby
Building A Lobby
Building B Lobby
Please pick one up and wear it tomorrow and Thursday.
It is good to know that all employees of the Worldwide Leader are all wearing buttons of flair this fine Wednesday morning. Everybody get your buttons!
