If a tree falls in the forest, does anybody give a shit?: Women’s World Cup of Soccer

June 30, 2011 Leave a comment

Hey ESPN, enough already.  Nobody cares about the women’s world cup.  It’s seriously probably the worst thing they have ever crammed down my throat.  News flash ESPN, a topless Brandi Chastain isn’t walking through that door.  I get that they probably dumped a whole bunch of cash on the exclusive rights to this event immediately after the post game strip celebration in 1999, but its time to cut your losses and give people something better like ping-pong.

PS: How is there so much money for women’s sports on a professional level? I know that Title IX exists for college and high school, but this is America.  Is ESPN actually making money on this? They can’t be.  On a similar note, the Chicago Sky WNBA team has billboard ads all over I-90.  How can they possibly afford that.  Those cost like 14k/per month in those locations.  That’s more than they make in an entire season.
