This week, former NFL wide receiver Randy Moss learned that there is more than one town named Bristol in America - a pretty important thing to know if you work for ESPN.

Moss, an analyst for Sunday NFL Countdown, relayed a funny story on today's show. After watching his son's last football game of the season, he caught a flight he felt was destined for Bradley International Airport on his way to what he thought was Bristol, Connecticut, where ESPN houses its main studios.

"Once we land, I'm looking for the Sheraton...the hotel that connects at Bradley...I said, 'hey, where are we?'" said Moss. As it turned out, he was in Bristol, Tennessee, which is roughly 700 miles southwest of where he wanted to go.

At least he didn't get on a plane for Bristol, England - otherwise he'd still be in the air.
