My other reason for shying away from the sports giant is that I feel at my ripe old age of 24 that the network doesn't really offer me, an adult, much in the way of programming anymore. I could care less about the spelling bee, which appears to only be as successful to the degree to which its shoved in our faces. Going over the intricacies of who's more "now", Tiger Woods or Matt Leinart? And have the ESPN anchors taking it seriously? Please. I have enough trouble wrestling the remote away from my little brother (22) and his damn Real World crap. Don't even get me started on that show...
I remember when I was younger waking up on Monday mornings to the shouting of "PLAYS! OF! THE WEEK!" and knowing it was going to be a good day because of that. Now, I wake up, write what I can here, hustle off to work and back home to catch up on my sports info. I really lack the time nowadays to watch ESPN for four hours to get my daily sports fix. The Internet is always on and there are inevitably a million more opinions and bits of info out there than ESPN (or any television network) could ever hope to deliver.
Maybe I spend too much time on the Internet checking out sports blogs. I was reading an article in a magazine yesterday and when I reached the end of it, I instinctually looked for the comment section. Go figure...
