Editor’s note: One of the few things ESPN employees love more than sports is their pets. Here, in the second half of a special two-part Lineup, are some of those pets. Check out Part One HERE.
1. Colin Cowherd, ESPN Radio host
Pet: Bugsy (French Bulldog)
Furry Fact: Colin is the biggest sports fan in his house and Bugsy is the second. He watches all the games alongside Colin.
2. Sara Walsh, SportsCenter anchor
Pet: George (age 6, English Bulldog)
Furry Fact: We’ve both torn our ACLs. He’s done it twice, I’ve done it once. The ACL tear effectively ended his skateboarding career, although his highlights live on in terribly shot – by me – YouTube clips. He also has the distinction of having been on SportsCenter. We were doing a lead-in about the Butler Bulldog not being allowed at the NCAA Tournament and they had my co-anchor come take him from me and say he wasn’t allowed in the SC studios. [George] was scared of the cameras, anyway. My family was far more excited to see him on TV.
3. Alexi Lalas, Soccer analyst
Pet: Bob (age 9, Yorkshire Terrier) continue reading…

Imagine John Stockton entering the Basketball Hall Of Fame as a Cleveland Cavalier.
Given that Stockton played 19 NBA seasons exclusively with the Utah Jazz, picturing the 2009 HOF inductee in any other pro uniform is difficult. But when Stockton was a point guard prospect coming out of Gonzaga University in 1984, one of the NBA coaches most interested in drafting him was George Karl – then coach of the Cavaliers and now an ESPN analyst.
That’s one of the interesting tidbits Stockton reveals in his autobiography “Assisted,” which he promoted during a recent ESPN Car Wash. In the video above, Stockton talks about the prospect of playing for Karl and the growth of Gonzaga basketball since his 1980s heyday. The No. 19 Zags (7-1), featuring John’s son David Stockton, play host to New Mexico State tonight (11 p.m. ET, ESPNU and WatchESPN). Tuesday, they visit West Virginia (9 p.m., ESPN2 and WatchESPN).

Pets: Laila (age 3, Golden Retriever), Maddie (age 3 months, Golden Retriever)
Furry Fact: Maddie and Laila are sisters from the same mom and dad in Ohio. According to Crawford, “Maddie is feisty, Laila is gentle and understanding, even though she can’t seem to shake her new shadow!”
