    Note to ESPN anchors:

    Tennessee's abbreviated nickname (Vols) rhymes with balls. If I hear another idiot on SportsCenter refer to them as the Voles, I'm going to scream.

    I don't think they're the Valls, either.

    What on earth makes you think they are better than that?

    I don't watch it, but I've usually got it on the background when I'm on the computer because it's something I can ignore. If I put the TV on the History Channel or something similar, I'll get sucked in and won't be able to get any work done.

    Yes, happens all the time. They mispronounce it so that Vols rhymes with "poles."

    ESPN anchors ... ARE they really better than that? Maybe that's the question we need to be asking.

    I had it on with the sound on for the first time in quite awhile last night. Until they had a report on Tampa Bay's interest in Barry Bonds, followed by a phoner on the idea from... you guessed it... Dick Vitale. He's a Rays season-ticket holder, which apparently makes him qualified to provide analysis.
