The World Wide Leader

    So apparently ESPN just inked a new deal with the NCAA to carry all their non-important championships through the year 2024. That's along freakin time.

    Not really sure if any of you will care about this story, but there is one thing I noticed. Scroll down to the official statement from ESPN. Read the first paragraph in italics, and tell me that doesn't take the phrase "World Wide Leader" and shove it up your ass.

    The only thing it's missing is the phrase, "and whatever the f*** else we come up with in the next 13 years"......

    In what way is conference realignment like Russian roulette?

    Coverage of actual sports > talking heads yelling at each other.

    Give me NCAA fencing or water polo over PTI or Around the Horn, thanks.

    The day after the MNF game between Seattle and St. Louis, they were breaking down the fact that Sam Bradford wore white socks with the all-while uniform, and the anchor asked Herm Edwards (no word of a lie): "How will this affect him, perception-wise?"

    I'm sure women's water polo scores will take their rightful place in the crawl alongside European soccer ...

    Also count me down for being with this. Recently, they were showing beach soccer, and that was great fun to watch. Give me the novelty sports over the re-broadcast of the 44-7 football game from 2 a.m. to 5 a.m., or for most of the ESPN2 schedule.

    If I ever get my hands on the asshole who came up with "the crawl" -- dead man. I couldn't hate anything more than I hate that abortion.
