On the evening of August 20th, I took the short ride over to the New Jersey landmark, Bookends in Ridgewood, to meet legendary radio & television personality Pat O’Brien, former CBS Sports sportscaster and host of Access Hollywood and The Insider. The crowd was small, making this a very intimate event. Pat came down and held a lengthy Q&A/discussion on his years in the sports & entertainment industry. With only a few questions asked, Pat took the time to tell many tales and encounters with, but not limited to, Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Mickey Mantle, Joe DiMaggio, and Robin Williams. He then wrapped things up so he could sign and take pictures with the fans.
Thanks to Pat O’Brien for coming down to Bookends and to Walter and his staff, who never fail to put on a great event.
