Something We Can All Agree On
Whether you're a Republican or Democrat, Auburn or Alabama, or just an apathetic loner, we should all be able to agree that ESPN's monopoly on sports has rendered mostly unwatchable excess. Yet since they are usually the only game in town, sports fans are consistently subjected to their pablum.
College football bloggers EDSBS (Everyday Should Be Saturday) have compiled a list of 52 examples of what is wrong with ESPN.
A few that struck a chord with me...
12. Tom Berenger's horrible old man prosthetics in The Junction Boys. Bear Bryant as burn victim, evidently.If you're and afflicted ESPN viewer I promise you'll find expression for your rage in this list. (A handfull of these contain some "strong language" , so be warned.)
28. The forced animosity between John Clayton and Sean Salisbury. Team Under Armor vs. Goliath has more verisimilitude.
30. Woody Paige. In our hometown, this guy cleaned your septic tank. On ESPN, he's an "expert."
40. ESPNU. Not even sure what this is, but it's unknown and strange-therefore by instinct we must hate it.
