View Full Version : OT: Anyone else tired of the X Games?

On BBTN Karl just asked which pitcher today had an 'X game' (obviously plug) whatever that is. You'd think they'd figure it out since X games are on ESPN and BBTN is on ESPN2 that anyone who cared about the X games would be watching them on the other channel. Dish Network even had the multi-screen X games on one channel. It was kinda neat at first to see some skateboard/bicycle/snowboard tricks on TV, but this stuff seems as stale as the half price yesterday's doughnuts at the Speedeemart. Am I completely off base here or are you all with me? (Just thinking out loud)

I'm not tired of the X-games----because they don't interest me and I don't watch them. I am tired of the promotions and any baseball airtime they may eat up.

I know SoCal is big on this stuff but even here there doesn't seem to be much interest in it---at least not among the people I see everyday and that includes surfers, boarders and (mountain) bikers. (shrug).
