Hey Mike And Mike – What is a sport?

Posted by TopOfTheThread on June 1, 2008

I Love ESPN SportsCenter and ESPNradio — but what is a sport?

sports espn

I watch SportsCenter at least once a day. First thing in the morning. Religiously.

Their format is great. The stories are interesting. I am a perfect fit for their demographic.

I enjoy the major and less-than-major sports. American sports. European. Austrailian. You name it, I watch it.

Hey – The World Series Of Poker is not a sport. I enjoy the coverage and watch it. (Why is watching poker on TV interesting? The reason this is so popular is because of the voyeuristic aspect of seeing everyone’s cards. One of the other TV stations showed a few hands in which you could only one hand — not interesting — you can do that on your own with your buddies.)

Yes – I even watch some of the Spelling Bee. Entertaining. Yes. A sport? No.

Watch this video. How entertaining is it?

My questions are (1) What is a sport? and (2) What next will ESPN start broadcasting that is not a sport?

NCCA lacrosse – Virginia v. Syracuse – goal of the game

Posted by TopOfTheThread on May 24, 2008

It is now between the 1st and 2nd quarter. Search out to see Virginia’s Will Barrow’s 1st quarter goal. Unbelievable. May be the goal of the year. Barrow, a Long Island kid, takes on the entire Orange defense…

And the Orange win in Double OT…

Let’s not forget Duke Lacrosse

Posted by TopOfTheThread on May 3, 2008

People have their own political and business agendas. How do we prevent what happened to the Duke Lacrosse team from happening again. In this instance a “dirty” politician happened to have gotten caught. The kids involved are still effected by the whole event. They lost out on a year of their life. They were forced to go through a traumatic event. The 3 accused had their names in the press and will undoubtedly be known for that event forever. Look, they are not alter boys, but typical college kids. Did they do anything wrong? Depending upon your morales, yes and no. Did they deserve what they went through… absolutley not.

How do we prevent this from happening again?
