Amare's big ESPN day ahead
If you did not see Amare Stoudemire speaking at a south Phoenix school recently or catch a glimpse of his work in pickup games at the arena this week, there will be plenty of Stoudemire available today.
Stoudemire is on the ESPN campus in Bristol, Conn., through the weekend, kicking it off today with a whirlwind media tour of the worldwide leader in sports.
Stoudemire's Thursday itinerary (all times are Arizona times):
8 a.m. -- arrive
8:15 a.m. -- ESPN2 "First Take"
9:30 a.m. -- Digital Media
9:50 a.m. -- ESPN Rise (a prep sports magazine)
10:10 a.m. -- ESPN Radio and ESPNU (simulcast), "The Herd with Colin Cowherd" (this show airs delayed in Phoenix so he would come on at 12:10 p.m. on KTAR-AM 620)
10:30 a.m. -- "E:60" (tape)
11:30 a.m. -- ESPN Radio (tape), "All Night with Jason Smith"
12:25 p.m. -- ESPN Radio and ESPN2 (simulcast), "Scott Van Pelt Show"
12:40 p.m. -- ESPN "SportsCenter" (co-host segment for 3 p.m. show)
1:15 p.m. -- leave
At some point, Stoudemire also will be filming an ESPN commercial with Kimbo Slice, the MMA fighter. On his Twitter account, Stoudemire said he also is planning on taking in Fashion Week, Sunday night's MTV Video Music Awards and some U.S. Open tennis action.
