ESPN is borderline unwatchable. If not for the live baseball games, I would never tune in.

yep, baseball and college basketball is about it for me. I get my sports news mainly from the internet. If they put on table tennis more often i would tune in ;-D

I cut my basic cable largely because I didn't get enough use out of it (I watch local HD channels exclusively). I don't miss ESPN one bit, not even a little. However, I do miss Discovery Channel and Animal Planet. That said, I don't miss them enough to pay $35/month. :^

The winning of the ESPN Who's Now competition = The Terrorists.

What was the deal with that guy in the intro. Was he just random intern forced to wear a black shirt and stand in front of the green screen, or was something deeper going on that I just missed. If it was an intern, then why did he walk with his shoulders hunched over and his arms in front of him. I think that was the most disturbing part of the whole segment.

Yeah that always annoyed me. What is he supposed to be walking through?

And if so, how can they be dumb enough not to know that a concept like that doesn't translate well from a forum (where they stole the idea from, obviously, the spies) to "major" cable television?

Duh? :-B


But debating "who's now" is completely pointless. If ESPN did a show called "Who's the hottest chick" it would be OK.

He was walking through History, which is only contained in HD arches and can only be accessed by wearing a tight black shirt. :-[
