I’m not a big sports fan, so there’s not much of a reason for me to watch ESPN in the first place. But I really got wondering what the deal was when I saw the Poker championships on ESPN.
Uh…I’m confused. Is poker a sport?
What would make it a sport?
Seriously, is it a sport?
Because–if it isn’t a sport–why the hell is it shown on ESPN?
That’s one thing I’d love to understand, because I know it’s gonna be on this summer, at least according to the ESPN site.
This is a head-scratcher to me–is it that nobody could figure out a channel that would take it? Why not Game Show Network or one of the other national basic cable stations besides ESPN?
I can’t find this answer anywhere–any takers or insightful awesome people out there that can shed light?
As a bonus, can anyone explain why Curling–of all the events–is featured so damn much in u.s. coverage of the Winter Olympics?
