We really don't mean to pick on Rachel Nichols, who seems like a nice enough person and has some legit journ cred. Or at least she used to, before she became a sideline reporter. The muscle memory of that ridiculous job led Nichols to ask that ridiculous question of David Stern at his Donaghy press conference, in which she asked to "Can you take us through the range of emotions that you felt when you first got this phone call from the FBI that someone had possibly corrupted what has been your life's work?" If Nichols has written "Game Of Shadows," the whole book would have been about how Victor Conte felt when he was rubbing clear on Barry Bonds' chest.
Anyway, we only bring up Nichols because PopJocks compiled a list of odd facts about SportsCenter anchors, and we found out that Nichols is the daughter-in-law of film director Mike Nichols, which makes her the stepdaughter-in-law of Diane Sawyer. It all makes sense now. Also, Kenny Mayne was once Randall Cunningham's backup. News we can use.
