The spirit of adored sports writer Mo Siegel lives in this man. When Andy Pollin opens the Our Town show it’s shocking to hear his impersonation of Siegel. It sounds more like Siegel, than Siegel. The Siegel bit for those who remember him, sets the tone of the interview. Ockershausen has a great deal of respect for this young man Andy Pollin and feels a camaraderie with him, in that he enjoys the same love of football that he has felt throughout the years as a big fan of the Washington Redskins. Andy O refers to Andy Pollin as the “book,” defined as one who knows the sports world like no other, or in other words a Walkingpedia of Sports.
Andy O’s biggest regret at WMAL back in “the day” was not hiring Andy Pollin when uncle Abe Pollin called him for employment advice. But no one is happier than Andy O when Andy Pollin gets his job back at ESPN 980 radio. His dial is rusted on 980. It’s a mutual admiration society when these two broadcasters come together to share their love of sports and history in Our Town, Washington, DC
