As I was walking back to my dorm from a long day of terrible classes, I was looking forward to turning on the TV and see what sports ESPN was showing. As it turns out, ESPN was not showing any sports, neither was ESPN2. The two stations were broadcasting the WNBA and something called the “Crossfit Games”….Seriously? Yesterday we talked about how great the sports world is going, and ESPN is blowing it.
First off, why does the WNBA exist? I am not being sexist; I am being realistic. They draw a smaller crowd than a little league baseball game.
Second, does anybody know what the Crossfit Games are? We are all for covering sports that most networks ignore and instead talk football; that is we are about here at the Penthouse. However, there are so many better options to show at this time. Come on ESPN, get it together! No wonder the shockingly beautiful Erin Andrews left.
If you disagree with me, and think that ESPN should be showing these programs, let me know and comment. If you agree with me, and think it is ridiculous, write which sports you think ESPN should show. Even though the baseball playoffs are on FOX and TBS, I expect better from what Dan Patrick calls, “The Mother ship.” Send your thoughts.
