Good Bye ESPN

Dear ESPN,

I haven’t been watching or listening to your programming for a few years now. The programming and analysts and commentary at the MLB Network are better. Dan Patrick is better than Colin Cowherd. I don’t watch the NFL, NBA, NCAA, MLS, the World Series of Poker, high school cheerleading competitions or NASCAR.

I did still occasionally check your website, but only after I read MLB.com SI.com, FoxSports.com, CBSsports.com and other sites first. Since Rob Neyer left though, I had even less reason to visit your website. I hate that the videos on your website automatically start when loading the page. I hate that you charge an ESPN Insider subscription to read articles on your website.

This is the final straw. I took the time to embed an ESPN.go.com video in a post for my blog instead of downloading and uploading it, and then you took down the video from your site. I’m done with you.

Good bye.

Don’t the door hit your arse on the way out.
