If this is where ESPN commercials are going, I'm taking up a new hobby.

Sports televising on the four letter network is almost too much to stomach anyhow, this puts it way over the edge...

Darkmane sounds like a comic book character.

This is what he's talking about. Horrible advertising campaign.

that's one.

They showed those every 5 minutes during the All Star Futures game. Makes me want to skip those channels now until that crap is over.

Kind of like the week before the Smackoff on Rome's show.

Around this time ESPN gets annoying with sports programming.

X-Games are just not a sport in the sense football and basketball is. OH look some just jumped a halfpipe, I understand tjhe risk involved but really does it need to be made into an olympic type event.

And..This one I'm going to catch a lot of crap for..but the LLWS opening rounds non-championship games SHOULD NOT BE ON TV. Honestly..they're like..12 for god sakes and you're going to cover them moreso then lets say High School Football. Again..not saying the Championship game shouldn't be on ESPN. But it gets pretty annoying when ESPN ranks it higher..then lets say the opening game of College Football (which did happen a few years back.)

I see plenty of the X Games on "Wacked Out Sports". Who wants to watch them succeed? "There are 206 bones in the human body. We're going to make 250." LOL

One of the funniest shows on TV, next to "Wind Tunnel"

I was expecting a Dark Knight/Kenny Mayne parody.
