ESPN Anchor Sage Steele Selling Her $1.6M Connecticut Home

ESPN SportsCenter’s co-host Sage Steele is selling her stately Avon, CT, home for $1,595,000. The sports journalist purchased the property in the Hartford suburb in 2017 for $1.24 million.

Steele also has a new role at SportsCenter, moving to the show’s 12 noon slot, from the 6 p.m. slot she had had since 2018. Along with the new gig, she’ll apparently also be moving to a new home.

Elle Duncan is clearly a passionate Georgia sports fan — for better or for worse.

On Tuesday’s episode of the Paul Finebaum Show, the fifth-year ESPN anchor went on a long-winded tirade about the misfortunes of her most beloved teams.

Duncan believes the entire state of Georgia is cursed.

“I love David Pollack, but he says to me at the beginning of last year, ‘You watch them Dawgs this year.’ Watch them do what David? I’m not even putting that on Kirby (Smart),” Duncan said Tuesday on The Paul Finebaum Show, per 247Sports. “My husband has a theory and I think you can appreciate this, Paul. This is a real theory he has thrown out as a long-suffering Braves fan, Hawks fan, Falcons fan, Bulldog … he thinks that Georgia, the state of Georgia, is still being cursed by General Sherman

Raines baseball highlight makes ESPN

It’s not every day that Jacksonville high school baseball gets the SportsCenter treatment.

So Tuesday night’s highlight was one to remember at Raines.

Raines shortstop Nick Joyner picked up a moment of fame in Tuesday night’s High School Heritage Classic, the baseball contest against Ribault that not only raises the curtain for the prep season but celebrates the legacy of the Jacksonville Red Caps, now officially recognized as the city’s first team with major league status.

Joyner produced the night’s biggest highlight, racing backward from the infield for a twisting, diving catch behind second base in the Vikings’ 16-5 victory to retain the A. Philip Randolph Cup.

The result: By the next morning, his catch made it onto the SportsCenter Top 10 for ESPN. 

Raines scored six runs in the fourth to pull away in the game, which had been rescheduled after a rain-out early in February.

Why one ESPN insider believes Washington will end up signing Ryan Fitzpatrick

ESPN insider thinks Washington will end up with Fitzpatrick originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

Since entering the NFL in 2005, Ryan Fitzpatrick has played for eight different franchises. And due to his soon-to-be-expired contract with the Dolphins, it appears that the passer and his beard could be headed to yet another destination when free agency begins.

Could that destination be Washington, though?

One ESPN insider thinks so.

During a Thursday appearance on SportsCenter, Field Yates joined for a segment where he predicted the landing spots for tons of different signal-callers, and when he focused in on the Burgundy and Gold, Fitzpatrick was the name he brought up.

“The Washington Football Team is kind of like the Patriots in that no man’s land,” he began.

“They have the 19th overall pick, probably can’t select a first-round quarterback, have a really good defense,” he continued. “How about Ryan Fitzpatrick, who I
