Let me get this straight: they have airtime on ESPN to show the National Spelling Bee, but World Cup soccer (when they show it at all – I’ve been watching half the games in Spanish) is relegated to ESPN2?

Dancing death muffins.

In other news, I’m hodge-podgedly working on a new design which features more whitespace and, yes, a rotating tagline. “A spongiform advice column for the perpetually distracted,” “the weblog equivalent of an out-of-body experience,” “squishy brain slugs singing lullabies,” and everyone’s favorite, “juxtaposition as a form of self-actualizing bricolage” comprise the current list. So, what I need to know is, have you said something clever about this blog/blogs in general that I’m forgetting? Have I ever said anything clever?

    Hey, you better believe the Spelling Bee is a match to the death… however, I think they should air both the Bee and World Cup soccer… and take off the billiards competitions and dog shows.

    Oh, and no, you’ve never said anything clever; we’re all just really easily amused.

    I’ll go with you on the dog shows (isn’t what Animal Planet is for?) but billiards competitions… hey, they’re just as boring as golf.
    I’m waiting for the debut of theme-ESPNs myself – the distribution of sports between ESPN and ESPN2 is just too arbitrary. If they had “We Think We’re In Europe” ESPN for soccer, formula 1 racing and maybe cricket, or “Sports That Don’t Break A Sweat” ESPN for billiards, golf,spelling bees, bowling, etc… and so on and so forth, then I think satellite television would be way more entertaining.
