LOS ANGELES—On Nov. 5, ESPN Senior VP Joan Lynch woke up in her home to find a front tire of her vehicle slashed. This is notable for two reasons. The first is that Lynch lives in the Pacific Palisades, which is not the sort of neighborhood where one gets one's tires slashed. The Palisades is west of Brentwood; it's a ritzy, tree-smothered enclave inhabited by celebrities and money both old and new. Even the mailboxes here look expensive. The second reason is that Lynch is the woman being sued by ESPN Senior VP Keith Clinkscales, who believes she is the source who told us, among other things, that Clinkscales had once masturbated in front of sideline reporter Erin Andrews.
