If I see a segment coming up called ESPN Deportes, I would expect it to be a discussion of what's going on the the Latin American sporting world, with or without accents. I would rather they talk about MLS or EPL on its own rather that trying to dress it up with some "Latin flava." I haven't seen it, but if it is as WilyMo describes, it seems to me like the "Deportes" idea is merely a marketing ploy, window dressing rather than any serious attempt to show interest in Latin American sports. When was the last time Sportscenter spent more than 5 seconds talking about Copa Libertadores?
