OK, now I've seen it all!

I remember some late-80s movie with Lilly Tomlin where a guy was all excited because he was going to compete in the National Miniature Golf Finals (in Vegas, I think). When they get to the event, it's being covered by ESPN, which I thought was really funny. A few months after I saw that movie, I flipped onto ESPN and (you guessed it) they were REALLY televising a miniature golf competetion. And it was ADULTS competeing (that was the best part).

So you can have your "triple word scores".... I'll take the split-green/ windmill-hazard dogleg on 17 anyday!

;-D


P.S. Other board games that are ESPN-2-worthy:

Battleship
Stratego
Sorry

and of course

Lets not forget about the Hungry Hungry Hippo championships ... Those take extreme skill and precise "Launching" of the Hippo head to gather up all those marbles ...

I guess it could be worse though ... Word is that ESPN² might actually show Hockey. Who the hell watches that? ;-)

I saw it. They compared some guy to the Muhammed Ali of Arm Wrsetling, because he talked smack and always won.
