    It took the Baseball Network starting up for ESPN to actually realize that maybe people want to watch popular sports on ESPN Classic. Now that the Baseball Network is providing some competition, ESPN is going to air some classic games - I assume it will be replacing their standard fare of rodeo, billiards, and stale boxing.


    This is why ESPN needs competition.

    You forgot to mention 20-year-old lips from a defunct professional wrestling group.

    ESPN Classic has wasted more potential than Derrick Coleman and Michael Ray Richardson.

    I thought you were going to bring up the upcoming Lil Wayne vs. Skip Bayless matchup on First and 10 next tuesday.

    Honestly, I think that anyone who watches 1st and 10 has a brain deficiency.

    Anyone who was lucky enough to have received Classic Sports Network remembers just how great this channel could have been. Once it was bought by ESPN it steadily declined into the useless shitbox it now is.

    Good for them to show more actual classic games, but Orioles - Royals from 1990? What is compelling about that, other than it was once on ESPN? Why would anyone watch this? The ratings will be miniscule, then ESPN will claim people just don't want to watch old games.

    Is this still the 1980s? I believe we reached reason No. 5,796 somewhere around 1989.

    Seriously. Aren't we up to reason No. 108,975 by now?
