my hatred of ESPN has been previously documented. today, however, they\’ve hit a new low.
see the image after the jump for the reason.
that\’s the headline deck from espn.com from this morning. what do we see?
- one NASCAR item which, i suppose, i understand. it doesn\’t appeal to me, but, then, i like to think i have full brain capacity.
- one NBA item, which is actually more of a police blotter item. although you could argue that they\’re synonymous.
- three baseball items. one insider, two yankees-related (of course), one of which is more appropriate for the Us Weekly website.
- seven football items. dom rhodes gets a headline for breaking the law. ron rivera gets a top headline for getting a demotion. tony dungy gets the top headline for not doing anything. and, frankly, i\’m surprised tom brady and his kid didn\’t make the cut.
is there really nothing else going on? i know, the NBA is on a break, and (unfortunately) baseball spring training stories don\’t captivate everyone like they do for me. but aren\’t there any actual sports stories we can focus on, instead of the latest soap opera in Big D or yankee stadium? i guess i should be happy we aren\’t blasted with a headline of peyton manning\’s latest endorsement deal.
