For Today Only, ESPNU Will Become ESPN 8 The Ocho


(ESPN Media Zone) – Drawing inspiration from the 2004 hit movie “Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story” featuring Vince Vaughn, Christine Taylor and Ben Stiller, ESPNU will become ESPN8: “The Ocho” on Tuesday, Aug. 8, or more appropriately, 8/8.  For one day only, the faux network will feature a line-up of unconventional sporting events ranging from Disc Golf to Ultimate Trampoline Dodgeball and Firefighters World Challenge playing off the mantra highlighted in the movie: “Bringing you the Finest in Seldom Seen Sports”.

Im honestly surprised it took ESPN this long to make this happen.  Seems like an absolute no brainer, even if it is 13 years late.  I pray that its a huge hit and becomes a regular thing.  I have no idea what Kabaddi or the Moxie Games are, but cant wait to find out.

Also, dont want, but NEED Cotton McKnight and Pepper Brooks to announce something.
