Monday’s PFT Live featured a visit from Mark Kriegel, who recently was hired by NFL Network to appear on the first 6:00 a.m. East Coast morning show that will originate on the West Coast at 3:00 a.m. local time.
Which, as Kriegel explained it, will transform him into a vampire.
He’ll partner with Steve Wyche on the NFL AM “Double Coverage” feature, discussing and debating the issues of the day.
On Monday, one of the issues Kriegel addressed flowed from his upcoming biography of Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini (pictured). His November 1982 fight against Duk Koo Kim, which resulted five days later in Kim’s death, caused some changes to boxing but even bigger changes to the public perception of the sport.
What would a Kim-style incident do to the public perception of the NFL? That’s one of the answers you’ll get if you check out Kriegel’s segment from PFT Live.
