    Perhaps ESPN realizes live sports aired in the middle of the night will get better ratings than SportsCenter reruns?


    Edit: In my excitement over the prospect of seeing the Sydney Swans, Geelong Cats and St. Kilda on ESPN, I missed the part where it states only four (4) regular season matches will be shown. Damn you, Worldwide Leader!!!

    It'll be preceded by Up Close with Roy Firestone, and followed by live coverage of the U.S. Olympic Festival.

    Saddam would've made a great scoring ref.

    ESPN is picking the English Premier League too. This piggybacks off the launch of ESPN in the UK.

    I can't wait until they start showing Notre Dame and UCLA football games on tape on Sunday mornings.

    Not unless they bring back Lindsey Nelson, and that ain't happening.
