If you still rely on ESPN….

for sports news then you probably should wake up and start getting your news elsewhere. ESPN has turned into the tmz of the sports world. ESPN is kind of like MTV. Once upon a time ESPN was a great sports network. However over time they’ve began transforming into a network that specializes in starting and spreading rumors.

FUCK ESPN Continue reading

I just checked the front page at espn.com and you won’t believe what is #4 on their top news stories. Yanks’ Chamberlain Pleads Guilty to DUI charge….I say who gives a shit. It should get reported but it’s not front page news. Joba has to pay a fine and spend some time on probation. Shocking isn’t it? That’s what first time offenders get. Why is this top news? It’s not like drinking and driving in rural areas never happens. If you’ve ever lived in a small town or rural area then you’ll know what I’m talking about. Road tripping is usually common practice. I’m not saying it’s right or condoning this behavior. However people who are not from rural areas always seem to be completely oblivious to the fact that so many people drink and drive. Joba was in Nebraska. C’mon is it that surprising that he drank and drove?

The #5 story is entitled: UConn men’s program had $6M profit in FY ’08. Again why is this front page worthy. ESPN is once again turning into the tabloid of sports. Calhoun said the basketball program brings in $12mil dollars to the university. He didn’t say whether or not that was profit. Revenues were over $14mil. I don’t even know why I’m getting into this weak story.

ESPN engages in some questionable journalism but I’m not going to let that stop me from enjoying the 2009 McDonalds All-Amercian Game tonight. I love nearly everything about these games. Having to listen to that senile, loudmouth Dick Vitale is the only thing I dislike about the game. My prediction for Most Outstanding Player: John Henson. Henson is a 6’10” Forward from, Odessa Florida. He’s one of 4 players in this game that’ll be going to UNC next year. I’ve only seen youtube clips of this kid but I really like his game. The McD’s Game is always a lot of fun to watch. Game starts at 7:00pm CST tonight. Don’t miss out!

  • **Correction: Dick Vitale is not working the McD’s Game. I was misinformed and couldn’t be happier.***

That’s all I’ve got for now. Check back tomorrow for a McD’s recap as well as part2 of the Pub’s MLB Preview.
