The phrase ‘family over everything’ doesn’t apply to Fox Sports host Skip Bayless, who blatantly informed his wife, “you’ll always be number two.”
The hot take artist recently opened up about the relationship between work and family, expressing the respect he has for Tom Brady’s apparent sense of balance while acknowledging that for him – work has and always will come first.
“I chose in my 20s, as I was coming up in this business, to not have children,” Bayless explained. “I married not my high school sweetheart but my junior high sweetheart and one reason we didn’t make it was I knew she wanted kids and I knew the deeper I got into my career, I just couldn’t have kids.”
. @RealSkipBayless explains why his personal life will always come second to his career:

Bayless went further, claiming he would have been a “horrible father” because of his priorities and did not want to inflict that on kids.
“Then I met my wife, Ernestine, 17 years ago in New York City,” he continued. “On our first date, as she will attest, I said ‘hey, if this happens to go anywhere, I’m sorry but I’m declaring myself upfront, you’ll always be No. 2 to my job, which is my life.’”
While most 70-year-olds are at or nearing the retirement stage of their lives, Bayless is still firing on all cylinders in sports media. The admission that he prioritizes work over family, ironically came as the Fox Sports host launched a new venture, his podcast aptly named The Skip Bayless Show.
“I am obsessed to this moment with what I am doing right here, right now with you,” Bayless said. “I live for this. It’s my whole life. It’s my calling. It’s not a job; it’s my passion. It’s what I was born to do and what I want to continue to do as long as my personal situation will allow it.”

Colorado Springs And Boulder Land In The Top 5 Of Best Places To Live In America By U.S. News & World Report
The 2022 rankings identified places in America that have the best “combination of jobs, desirability, cost of living, quality of life.” And it apparently helps to be tucked up next to beautiful Rocky Mountains. In the case of Colorado Springs, the No. 2 city on the list, nearby 14er Pikes Peak “is the backdrop.”

For Boulder — No. 4 — the U.S. News writers described the city as “a looker” whose backdrop is “the snow-capped Indian Peaks.”

Colorado Springs is praised for having a small town feel despite being one of the biggest cities in the state. It’s the kind of place where “people regularly stop to say hello to someone they know at their neighborhood brewery or grocery store.” Its downtown is described as being easy to navigate through. It also has a high ranking for its quality of life and job market.
Perhaps to the chagrin of some folks in Colorado Springs, Huntsville, Alabama, nabbed the No. 1 spot in the rankings. That city was recently chosen as the new headquarters of United States Space Command, which has always been located in Colorado Springs and city leaders are fighting the move.

Boulder gets high marks for incredible fitness and wellness options and a special nod is given to the rock climbing scene there. In fact, the publication chose to feature the city’s popular Flatirons in its tweet announcing the new rankings.

No other Colorado cities made it into the Top 50, although Fort Collins and Denver were ranked 54th and 55th, respectively.
