Okay guys, I know sports to televise are scarce as hen's teeth but while scanning the channels this morning ESPN was televising the 51st Stone Skipping Championships from Windemere Beach! I can just here the colocr commentators now....'oh tough conditions here today folks, a little chop on the pond'! Do the competitors have uniforms with sponsors names and logos all over them???

OZ ... When you finish watching that, the site has a nice video on the Plastic Cup Stacking Championships, the World Sign Spinning Championships (like the Progressive Insurance signs), the Cherry Pit Spitting Championships, National Puppy Day and a computer simulation of this year's canceled March Madness Basketball Tourney ... Seriously, I am NOT kidding on any of those offerings! ... Enjoy!

Hey B.J., I am guessing a VCR is like today's DVRs? Just kidding, we all know that one old guy, like Timmy Mac, that still owns a VCR.

If you have watch the movie Dodgeball, you will remember the joke in the movie that the tournament was televised on ESPN 8 - The Ocho. ESPN was having some fun during these tough times by converting ESPN 2 over to The Ocho for some fun and levity. That is why all the sports were crazy, like Death Diving and Dodge-Juggle....
