Although considered by some (many) the resident clown at ESPN for the past dozen years, Paige actually played a clown in a Ringling Bros. circus performance. He played himself, a stretch, in ""Rocky Balboa''
He has flown with the U.S. Navy's Blue Angels (and vomited), won two harness races, lost a camel race, driven a pace car around the Indy 500 track and played in a pro-am with Phil Mickelson. He worked as a roadie at a Jackson Five reunion tour concert, visited the White House Oval Office bathroom, drank beer with Jimmy Buffet and Irish whiskey with U2, and played Blackjack alongside Michael Jordan in Monte Carlo.
He has covered more than 40 Super Bowls, 14 Olympics and every major college and pro sports event on four continents. He covered the aftermath of 9/11 in New York City, the Columbine shootings in Colorado, 1960s civil rights marches in the South and the aftermath of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination in Memphis, five national political conventions and a Presidential inauguration.
Paige has received more than 100 awards, including Lambda Chi Alpha's Order of Achievement, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention Award and the University of Tennessee's Distinguished Alumni Award.
Paige yearns to do something worthwhile with his life before it's too late.
