Can We Have Willie Nelson Instead?
ESPN is taking SportsCenter on the road. They plan to do 50 broadcasts from 50 states at 50 different sporting events over 50 consecutive days. Chris Berman, who will be one of the hosts, chimes in, "So, just like the U.S. Senate, every state is represented equally on this tour."
Given that no one watches SportsCenter anymore, we can all breathe a sigh of relief that while Berman is technically correct, SportsCenter will not imitate the Senate and do *two* broadcasts from each state.
The tour will stop in Chicago on August 22 for the Cubs / Braves tilt. The Sun Times' Elliott Harris suggests that this will, "probably will send a few White Sox fans looking for their barf bags."
Hey, Elliott. Given that the Sox just quit ESPN Radio to go with rival Infinity, don'cha think ESPN isn't looking to do the Sox any favors?
