Making Fun of ESPN is Too Easy

Friday, April 20, 2007

This article from Phil Mushnick (who I rarely agree with) in the NY Post just cracked me up. Apparently during the Marco Scutaro walk-off homerun against Mariano Rivera, ESPN put up a graphic stating, "This was the 4th Walk-off Homerun given up by Mariano Rivera in his career. All 4 have been on the road." Hmm, really? Wait don't all......hmm.....?

A graphic noted that this was the fourth "walk-off" home run Rivera has allowed in his career. And then the all-sports network's graphic further noted that all four "have come on the road." How's that for a coincidence! Of course, the only sports-minded people who wouldn't realize that all "walk-off" hits are the results of pitches thrown by visiting team pitchers - the road team's pitchers - work at ESPN. Once again, ESPN out-slicked itself.
God I wish I had seen that live (and had video). Too funny.

ESPN Those Walk Off Wonders (NY Post)

strangely enough a rod has never hit a walk off on the road, clearly he is not clutch.

Forcing users to mouse-over every single word of your blog posts to find out if there is a hyperlink is lame. This isn't reading Strongbad Emails! Please change your blog post settings.

There are questions about ESPN's credibility regarding accuracy?

DOn't they employ Len Pasquarelli and Salisbury?

G-off, it's pretty simple. Any link you need to click on is always listed at the end of the post. Also any website I reference is always linked. Everything will be back the way it was on Monday.

Thanks for reading.
