Saturday's Dump & Chase: Why Do We Care About ESPN?

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE

They don't care about hockey. We know that. There are several reasons for this, some obvious, some not. But why do we care that they don't care? I think it's time to collectively acknowledge that ESPN is the Yankees-LeBron-Tebow network, and if you like those things, watch. If not, don't. We don't get mad at Lifetime for not playing more movies about guys (who aren't serial killers or have two families), or Comedy Central for not showing more tear-jerkers, right? ESPN has more than a few problems right now, and they're not nearly as influential as they once were. So maybe it's time to let it go.
