ESPN upsides

2 things I’m really enjoying from ESPN these days:

…If you don’t know what it is, it’s what you get when you stick MST3K, Sports, and 2 funny brothers in a blender. It runs on ESPN Classic every night, where they mock, insult, and poke fun at classic sporting events like “The World’s Strongest Man”, “Super Jocks, Super Dogs”, “The Putt-Putt Championships” and even “The 1997 Spelling Bee”. Erica and I have the show on a Season Pass on TiVo and we usually watch a couple episodes per week. You’ll occasionally get a dud, but for the most part it’s high comedy. The more you watch, the more you start to enjoy their humor. I highly recommend it.

I’ve been a huge fan of Dan Shanoff’s “Daily Quickie” on for a few years now. It’s a great way to get the headlines of the day with a little bit of insight and wit thrown in. Over the past week or two i’ve also been participating in the Morning Quickie Chat from 9am to 10am EST. There’s always great insight from educated sports fans, and Shanoff keeps the chat moving at a good clip. Because I’m at work, i can’t sit there and participate the entire time, but I’ll pop in here and there and add a comment or two if i have one. The cool thing is, Dan will post some of my comments during the chat, which i was surprised by at first. I think i may even be considered one of the “regulars” now, so that’s cool. here’s a few archived transcripts you can look at to read my heady insight. you might need an Insider subscription for this, but you should really have one anyway…
