Not that I was expecting for it to be groundbreaking television (considering it's actually what SportsCenter was and what Outside the Lines is now), but the debut of E:60 went pretty splendidly last evening. I had numerous people write in to agree, but the best (and most touching of all) was the following email from reader Pam.....
I saw the debut of E:60 tonight and was particularly touched by the Jason Ray segment. My son, Joseph McCormick, actually attended UNC-Chapel Hill with Jason. Jason was my son's bible study leader. Jason and my son were very close, and Jason helped Joseph grow significantly in his knowledge of Christ. In fact, Joseph became a bible study leader after Jason's death. My son is studying abroad this semester in Italy and missed your program.Now I don't know how or why PM thinks that this site is an ESPN suggestion box, or if he/she just forwarded me the email she sent to them, but I agree....great piece by ESPN. As for the overall show, I thought the production was a little cheesy and shaky at times, but those are things you can hammer out as you move along. I think E:60 has a place alone amongst the chaos, randomness and generally crappy ESPN programming. Now if you can only do something with Lou Holtz' Pep Talk and make us forget the ESPNHollywoodWho'sNowStuScott'sPoetrySlamSkipBaylessKornheiserOn
Is there any way I could get a DVD of that portion of the program??? I would be most appreciative.- PM
MondayNightFootballTheMovie3ChristianSlater's of your network....I'll be happy.
Oh, and get Bill Simmons out of that damn spandex!
P.S.- If that was actually an ESPN employee posing as a reader you know you're going to hell right? And also, let me know if you can get a DVD to PM....I'll be glad to put you in contact.
