Many of you are probably aware of this development. I think we all saw this coming. In my household, today is National Turn off ESPN Day. What is the point of this idea? This feat does not deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence of Guiness Book of World Records. And yes, I plan on watching the actual football game, but on mute.
Over/under too many mentions of Brett Favre on ESPN today...

ESPN decided to spruce up everybody's collective day with this little gem. It involves a video of two little kids at a Yankees game fighting with those foam finger things. For an extra dose of entertainment, ESPN made its boxing analyst Teddy Atlas phone in to provide commentary for this "fight." God only knows what poor Teddy was thinking as he talks about the one kid's uppercut that hit "nothing but air." Am I being cynical, or did ESPN definitely place this video in its Top Ten plays for the day?
Also, you have to feel bad for the one kid who was cruelly labeled "Redhead" in ESPN's tale of the tape - kid's gotta deal with that label enough already.
