Default Disc Golf on the "Ocho" (ESPN 8)

I think this is a legit announcement from ESPN.

https://www.sbnation.com/lookit/2017...eal-tv-channel

All of you Dodgeball fans will recognize "The Ocho". Looks like DG leads off the day at 12 Midnight, I've already set my DVR, for Tuesday, 8/8.

It should be interesting to see what they do with it. And no Pickleball anywhere in the lineup!

Pickeball is more of an ESPN5 sort of sport. Right alongside broomball, cup stacking and punkin chunkin.

The one good thing I will say about this broadcast is that MJ, Rick and Devan had some amazing throws and if someone just sees that instead of the annoying pomp and circumstance in the beginning they may actually be compelled to learn more about DG. The downside is that Billy is a little too old school NASCAR of an announcer for many and the things like the cash in ziplock baggies and hooters girls are kind of gross.

Too bad they don't have some good footage from Terry/Jomez/CCDG.

I don't get why we (collectively) argue about this. Why can't it be both?

It is both. Some people play casually, some people play competitively, like most other sports in the world...

Anywho, I feel it kind of comes off as a joke since creating the "ocho" is a joke. Either way, I enjoy all the YouTube coverage and would just consider it a bonus if it makes it on the television.
