Bob Ley boils down the essence of "Outside The Lines."
"Let's go commit some journalism," Ley said.
There isn't another show on sports television -- and few others in television, period -- that can match ESPN's crown jewel when it comes to committing quality journalism on a regular basis. "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.
Ley, who was the anchor for the first OTL on May 7, 1990, admits the landmark anniversary caught him by surprise.
