Former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin told an interviewer that she named Bristol in part for Bristol, Conn. — home of the sports network ESPN.
"When I was in high school, my desire was to be a sportscaster," she said. "Until I learned that you'd have to move to Bristol, Connecticut. It was far away. So instead, I had a daughter and named her Bristol."
More to come.
