ESPN.com's Greatest Highlight B.S.

    Anyone clicked on this ESPN.com poll yet? Anyone voted?

    It kills me. There is one "bracket" that features Babe Ruth's "called shot" versus Willie Mays' over-the-shoulder catch.

    My question: How can the Babe one even be considered? THERE IS NO VIDEO EVIDENCE OF THIS MYTHICAL SHOT! So how in the hell can ESPN use it in a "greatest highlight contest" when the highlight doesn't even exist?!

    There is a grainy home video. And it looks like he's pointing to left field, not center, though it's hard to tell.

    I've heard that. But the clip ESPN uses is some other homer. And a fake point spliced into the middle of the clip.

    This entire Greatest Highlight thing is total BS... beyond stupid, even for ESPN.

    Nothing will ever top the stupidity of Who's Now.

    Hell is an endless loop of Who's Now, Dream Job and Stewart Scott's Greatest Hits.

    DON'T WATCH THE FUCKING SHOW! I haven't watched for years, and somehow, life moves forward. Let ESPN do all of the stupid shit they want, don't validate it by watching it.

    That makes far too much sense.

    Of course, it's ripped off from FOX's "Best Fucking ______" series.

    If I employed people who felt they had to rip off ideas (intellectual concepts) from Fox, I'd have then suffocated as an act of mercy.

    I dunno. AP's NewsNow is pretty useless. But that's neither here nor there.
