Going Off The Grid: Execs Discuss Winter Olympic Events, Gruden's Return To Raiders

"Going Off The Grid" is a weekly survey of sports execs and personalities offering their thoughts on a handful of pressing (and trivial) issues in sports and pop culture. This week, panelists chime in on Jon Gruden's new venture, as well as the NBA's "City Edition" uniforms. 

  • PGA Tour Chief Media Officer Rick Anderson
    -- Still feeling the effects of the loss of Tom Petty.
  • NHL Group VP/Int'l Strategy Lynn White 
    -- Looking forward to seeing Springsteen on Broadway in two weeks.
  • USOC CFO Morane Kerek
    -- "Sorry Not Sorry" by Demi Lovato is the song she hates that she loves.
  • Univision Deportes VP/Live Events Miguel Angel Garcia
    -- Became a dad for the first time in '17, so his pop culture revolves around Mickey Mouse.
