Fun with Laura Rutledge and Greg McElroy

The ESPN duo poke fun at each other after a day of bringing joy to patients at Children’s of Alabama.

ESPN colleagues Laura Rutledge and Greg McElroy take playful jabs at each other in a tongue-in-cheek interview after their visit to Children’s of Alabama in support of the Regions Tradition.

“I don’t know what she does the 14 or 15 days a year she’s not working,” joked McElroy about Rutledge’s presence across ESPN’s many broadcasting platforms.

Rutledge’s response?

“He’s a huge star in this business,” she said. “I think sometimes his head gets too big.”

It’s all in fun, of course. But make no mistake: The rapport is genuine, as is the time the duo gives to visit the young patients at Children’s, one of the nation’s top pediatric hospitals.
