    Outside the Lines celebrates 25 years of hard-hitting journalism

    Bob Ley boils down the essence of "Outside The Lines."

    "Let's go commit some journalism," Ley said.

"Outside the Lines," also known as OTL, will celebrate its 25th anniversary Tuesday with a one-hour special on ESPN at 7 p.m. ET.
