ESPN NASCAR reporter Nicole Briscoe is a big Green Bay Packers fan. In part two we discuss the Green & Gold. In part one we discussed Danica Patrick, who like Briscoe attended Hononegah Community High School in Rockton Illinois. Part three runs later today on Chicago Now, discussing all things media related. Following NASCAR Chase for the Sprint Cup Media Day, the top 12 drivers will took part in ‘NASCAR Contenders Live’ — a fan Q&A event held at the Grand Ballroom of Navy Pier. At the event, hosted by Nicole Briscoe (see picture below) the drivers discussed the most competitive time of the season, The Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup At the start of this interview Nicole Briscoe ironically told me she was really nervous about public speaking. We talked right before she hosted NASCAR Contenders Live, and expressed his uneasiness. “I’m used to talking into a camera; with just three or four people around me,” Briscoe said. She expressed the same sentiment in the tweet below. A little nervous. I’ll be I that stage later today. Public speaking freaks me out! #contenderslive pic.twitter.com/OfEF6B5XeF — Nicole Briscoe (@RB_Mrs) September 12, 2013 Paul M. Banks: so about your beloved Green Bay Packers Nicole Briscoe: “I was born in Wisconsin, my whole family is from Wisconsin and I moved to Wisconsin when I was seven. So I’m sort of a transplant, and I picked up baseball after I moved here so I’m a Cubs fan, but my family bleeds green and gold, I would be disowned if I was a fan of anyone else. I’m not kidding.” Banks: You most NFL pundits picked the Pack to win the NFC North? Briscoe: “Did you see the game the other day? It was terrible.” Banks: so what would fix first? Briscoe: “defense, clearly wasn’t (there).  I think going into this season, Green Bay was one of the top four teams picked to go into the Super Bowl, so were the Niners, but i thought the defense looked terrible. I don’t think the offense looked at all that awesome.” Banks: “If you’re Mike McCarthy, what do you start?” Briscoe: “Defense, what he hell was that? It just seemed like a bunch of testosterone driven high school kids that were just mad and there was no focus.” A native of Roscoe, Illinois, and former Miss Illinois Teen USA, Nicole Briscoe, previously known as Nicole Manske, and today sometimes known as Nicole Manske Briscoe got a lot of national media coverage when she started co-hosting The Speed Report on Speed Channel as well as hosting NASCAR Now on ESPN2. She also hosts NASCAR Countdown that airs on ESPN before NASCAR races. In December of 2009, Nicole married her boyfriend of 4 years, IndyCar series driver Ryan Briscoe. Paul M.
