I'm pretty sure I know this. Darn. Next question will tell.

Does the mans last name start with a M?

And I think I know this one too. I'm going to have to step aside.
Sending a PM to confirm.

Due to lack of interest, plus early guesses, I've decided to cancel this puzzle.
***SPOILER***
This puzzle, as Grip and Balin quickly figured out, is about how sportscaster Al Michaels's contract with ESPN was bought out by NBC when its sister company, Universal, relinquished the rights to Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, the pre-Mickey Mouse character created by Walt Disney, to Disney, ESPN's parent company.

Didn't work out, but still a good idea for a puzzle, though!
