A Two-Man Oral History Of “The Princess Bride” Episode Of ESPN NFL Kickoff

On the Friday, November 9, episode of ESPN’s NFL Kickoff, host Trey Wingo and analysts Mark Schlereth and Tedy Bruschi talked, as they usually do, for a half hour about the latest NFL news. But something about this episode was different. For 30 minutes, amidst the discussion of the Patriots’ defense and the Chiefs coaching situation, ESPN 2 became a one-channel celebration of The Princess Bride as the trio tossed in references to “corners of unusual size,” “cliffs of insanity,” and more.
