“It’s a bold strategy Cotton, let’s see if it pays off for them.”
One of the finest sports channels in movie history is becoming a reality. Get ready for Cotton McKnight and Pepper Brooks to return to the airwaves because ESPN is making ESPN 8: The Ocho a reality. The network announced that next week they’re turning the joke network from Dodgeball into a real broadcast network next week.
That’s right they’re bringing us the finest in seldom-seen sports from around the globe since 1999. So, for one day on Thursday, August 8th (that’s 8/8) they’ll air some of the seldom-seen sports and they already released a list of programming on ESPNU for 24 hours. Things like disc golf, trampoline dodgeball, cornhole, and kabaddis. Unfortunately it appears they will not be live from The Las Vegas International Dodgeball Invitational.
“If it’s almost a sport, we’ve got it here.”
