‘Picking up Butch’ On ESPN Tuesday Night
ESPN’s show E:60 will run a segment on the 50th anniversary of the tradition of bringing Butch Varno, a local man with cerebral palsy, to basketball and football games. Basketball players give him a ride to football games and football players perform the opposite favor.
Tune in to ESPN at 7 p.m. Tuesday night to watch the segment.
Update: You can watch the segment in its entirety here, and let me say these 12 minutes are absolutely worth your time.
