As many could have guessed, Valdosta, GA is Titletown USA. I’ll let that sink in.
Who cares? While I find it somewhat preposterous that a real city like Boston or New York isn’t considered “Titletown,” the very concept of ESPN’s promotion irks me far more. Fortunately, SportsCenter will no longer be interrupted with these pointless incursions, and if the title had to go somewhere, at least it went to a place with a successful high school. For whatever it’s worth (I’ll give you a hint…it’s worth nothing).
Also of note on ESPN this week: more about Brett Favre. Who he’s calling, what he’s thinking, and when he defecates (as well as the quantity, and quality, of defecation produced). Splice that in with some NFL Live and you’ve got yourself a top-notch programming block. Remind me to watch again when the next FIFA World Cup of beach soccer rolls around.
