Because you learn from watching ..... there are up and down buttons on your remote, use 'em ... they're there for a reason.
Well said Soop! speaking of changing channels, I had the Deuce on yesterday just in time for the national jump-rope competition?!?
Wow, ESPN is really scraping the bottom of the barrel these days to come up w/ programming !
haha yea i saw that too... for the min. i was watching they had like jump-rope dancing or something like that...
I've heard that they've also carried Scrabble tournies, too. There was that big mistake a couple of years ago where someone played a naughty word on the air. Apparently, they change the rules of the game for on-air play, and they had to cut to commercial so they could get the whole thing sorted out. They ended up taking back the two turns (the next guy had already gone), and forcing the other guy to take back his word.
What was this naugthy word? Lez.
I'm still waiting for them to give the world monopoly championships some love... maybe bring back the guys from the Ocho in Dodgeball to do he announcing...
