Think of the possibilities!!

"an extraordinary one involving a professional athlete, a sports mascot, twelve cheerleaders, an Indy car, and a broom."

I think I've had a dream like that, only change broom to harmonica. Another problem I can think of for ESPN "entertainment" is that they could run short of ideas for sport-related movies. Sure, Bobby Knight and Pete Rose make for exciting biopics but soon ESPN might find a paucity of interesting people or stories. Here are some of the titles we might expect to see:


  • Comb-over - The Lou Henson Story
  • In a Pinch - The Manny Mota Story
  • Whacked-out - the Tonya Harding Story
  • The Smallest Celtic - The Nate "Tiny" Archibald Story
  • Short Shrift - the Dave Concepcion Story
  • An Angel in Rome - The Roman Gabriel Story
  • Boling Alley (oop) - The Manute Bol Story

Just as long as they don't start showing Xtreme Basketball, I don't care what they do.

****************

Update: Just heard that ESPN is going to be showing a retrospective on the off-court life of Wilt "the Stilt" Chamberlain called Send It In Big Fella. I hope they don't show that in primetime, some of Wilt's grandkids might still be awake.
