Memo to Bristol: Naming

ESPN, I have a couple of ideas for you. Free of charge. This time.

So, I had a couple of ideas for spinoff channels, you know, like ESPN2, ESPNews, ESPNClassic. That kind of thing.

How about:


For sports' greatest actors. All flopping, all the time. Great programming like Roundtable featuring former refs and Oscar winners discussing the classics, The Daily Flop hosted by Vlade Divac, Flop House (a reality show where famous floppers live in a house together for a month), and more. Occasionally, THESPN could show movies featuring actors, like Wilt in Conan The Barbarian, Kareem in Airplane, Mhuresan in My Giant, (What is it with centers? Are they better actors? More teachable? Able to lend a hand to the D.P.?) and Xavier McDaniel in Singles.

Also it only runs commercials features sports stars.



Like the fashion channel for jocks. Experts discuss current trends in sports hair on Mane Event, makeover shows abound like Extreme Jock Makeover (hosted by John Amaechi, Erin Andrews, and Isaac Mizrahi), NBA Draft Fashion Police, The Uniform Unit (a drama featuring the other Bacon brother, Master P, and Dikembe Mutombo trying to get to the bottom of historically bad NBA logos and uniforms), and more.
