OK, now I've seen it all!

Postby perlick29 » Tue Dec 28, 2004 12:13 am

Ok. The other day I'm flipping throught the channels during a commercial break of the Giants-Bengals game. I come across ESPN. Now I'm one of those people that occasionally likes watching Poker, trickpool, streetball, ping pong, and even chess and other games on TV, they are kind of fun. And I know that the spelling bee usually has a good following. But what I saw was shocking...

THE,

NATIONAL SCRABBLE CHAMPIONSHIPS? It was on ESPN not ESPN 2. Wow. and they made it seem like it was a big deal. To me that's a program that belongs strictly on ESPN ocho. Now I've seen it all, know what I'm saying? 8-o

By they scrabble with chuck woolery, now that did rule back in the day. B-)

Man, I have to admit. Not only did I see the Nat'l Scrabble championship, but I watched the whole thing. And enjoyed it more than half the baseball games I watch.

I not only knew that they televised those games, but I also know of a big stink that happened around one of the games that got brief national media attention.

Normally, Scrabble lets you play any word in a dictionary. However, for television, they have to take out the offensive words. Well, one guy didn't get the memo, and he played "lez" on a national broadcast. To make matters worse, the referee didn't notice until the gentleman's turn came back up. It took them 20 minutes to decide to "rewind" the game and make him take the word back.

Anyway, I tell the story because otherwise this thread will be boring as hell (no offense, Perlick).

I'm with AA here, I wouldn't mind watching the scrabble championship, because I used to play in some small competitions myself too.

Rock-paper-scissors championship on the other hand... ?? 8-o ??

The scariest part is that Scrabble has been aired several times on ESPN. :-o

Guess they are running out of sports to show...... :-o

Give me some winter league baseball! ;-D
