And we’ve been very impressed with them. And we’ve been working on this deal for almost a year. When you get involved, it takes you everywhere.” Gardner’s role as a serial entrepreneur, advisor and investor in sports and entertainment goes back 30 years.

Neither is missing. ” Harris’ career as a senior executive in sports and entertainment dates back 20 years.
