  ESPN pulls plug on cell operation, seeks to partner with carriers - Boston.com
ESPN is closing down its cell phone company for sports fans after less than a year, planning instead to forge deals with other wireless operators to offer Mobile ESPN's multimedia content, the majority-owned subsidiary of Walt Disney Co. announced Thursday.
For Mobile ESPN, of course, the target audience was that breed of sports fans who are willing to pay extra to get their favorite team's name on a license plate.
Mehta said discussions with wireless operators to adapt the Mobile ESPN application for their cell phones have already begun, and that new offerings would likely emerge in less than a year, but that no deals were imminent.

  ESPN - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
ESPN was originally owned by a joint venture between Getty Oil Company (which was purchased by Texaco) and Nabisco.
ESPN was long considered to be the standard in American sports broadcasting, but it has recently been criticized for unimaginative programming and purposely hiring polarizing, "loudmouth" personalities who are pitted against each other in the "talking heads" format that has plagued cable television news channels.
ESPN is referenced in a Simpson's cartoon episode; Homer flips through various channels and stops on a channel which clearly lampoons ESPN, except the network's initials are PENiS (an anagram of ESPN).

 The 2006 ESPN Baseball Encyclopedia
The Baseball Encyclopedia is produced annually by ESPN, which is a cable network devoted to sports programming.
The Baseball Encyclopedia consists of 1,743 pages of very small print (not tiny enough where you would need a magnifying glass, like the Oxford English Dictionary, but certainly not big enough to make for comfortable reading) detailing the stats of every major league player that has been involved in the game since 1871.
Sure, you can quickly find the stats of current players by looking on the ESPN website or something, but if you want to find some stats and records from more obscure players, you'd have to search through a lot of different sites.

One big possibility why the original ESPN Mobile flopped was because it was a standalone cellphone company, but now it will be packaged into Verizon and their V-Cast service.
ESPN Mobile will be closing the doors on their start-up company, for good (kind of, until they find a big wireless carrier to bring on their data service).

ESPN's much-ballyhooed return to its NASCAR roots -- the network, along with TNN, helped build NASCAR into a TV powerhouse -- is good for NASCAR in that it offers so many outlets for the sport.
ABC, ESPN's parent company, is a division of the Walt Disney Co., and ESPN Deportes is an outgrowth of the original ESPN International division founded in the mid-1990s from ESPN's Bristol, Conn. headquarters.

 ESPN NFL PrimeTime 2002 (Xbox) Reviews. Xbox Games Reviews by CNET.   (Site not responding. Last check: )
ESPN NFL Prime Time isn't the right game for anyone who's greatly concerned about the presentation and handling of his or her football game.
ESPN NFL Prime Time for the Xbox is a football game that's best suited for people who are really into the management aspect of football, mostly because it features an incredible list of management options--but also because it's simply not the best-playing or best-looking Xbox football game out there.
While ESPN NFL Prime Time certainly has an impressive franchise mode, the actual playing of the game leaves something to be desired, especially if you've already seen or played any of the other football games for the Xbox.

 Espn - Deadspin
ESPN's Draft Tracker might not be of much service here; currently, ESPN has a player ranking for Albany State running back Antonio Atkins, who, uh, was killed in April 2006 when he was breaking into a house.
To their credit, ESPN has Atkins listed as 145th out of 145 ranked running backs, which is encouraging to those other 144 guys, to be certain.
Considering all the trouble ESPN has had with its fantasy game, we suppose it's inevitable (and probably pretty smart) for Yahoo (where we've been doing all our fantasy games for years) to rub it in a little bit.

ESPN is known as the Worldwide Leader in Sports, and here's why: ESPN.com, ESPN Deportes, SportsCenter, ESPN The Magazine, ESPN Classic, ESPNEWS, ESPNRadio, ESPN360, ESPN International and EOE, among other ESPN platforms.
ESPN has so many products, with so much reach and so many technical advantages, the Busch Series -- or the Samsung, Wal-Mart or Subway Series in 2008 -- will be able to ride the wave to independence.
The racing is solid, the teams are solid and the series represents a place for young drivers to learn and older drivers to teach and hold onto their careers.

 ESPN Sports-Speak Is Increasingly Also Becoming Sports-Write - New York Times
According to a new survey of sports journalists by a doctoral student, ESPN is to blame.
Reinhardy said he linked the rise of sports-speak to the fact that many younger sportswriters were reared on ESPN, which was founded in 1979.
Another factor is that newspaper sportswriters tend to migrate to side jobs as ESPN commentators.

 Rush Limbaugh 'Disappointed' by Former ESPN Colleagues -- 10/07/2003
On Sunday's ESPN program, which was sans Limbaugh for the first time this season, co-host Chris Berman said of Limbaugh's remarks, "I'm angry for the hurt it's caused African Americans.
Co-host Tom Jackson, who is African American, was the most critical of Limbaugh, implying that he and the other ESPN hosts did not even support the decision to hire Limbaugh in the first place.
Limbaugh denied that he was told by ESPN to avoid "social commentary" and refuted Jackson's claims that ESPN management had forced the rest of the program's hosts to accept Limbaugh on the program.

 Amazon.com: ESPN: The Uncensored History: Books: Michael Freeman   (Site not responding. Last check: )
ESPN changed that and, in so doing, also changed the way sports was covered, society's viewing habits, and sports itself.
I think Freeman's book is a good history of how ESPN became the media giant that it is (I was born in 1982-- i cant imagine life without ESPN), but the book focused WAY too much on the sexual harassment angle, and it bogs down the story.
ESPN: The Uncensored History by sports journalist Michael Freeman is an eye-opening, bare-all look at the global telecommunications network that since its inception in 1979 as the "Entertainment and Sports Programming Network", has gone on to become virtually synonymous with televised sports.
