ESPN outdoes itself.

Teeing off on ESPN seems barely even worth doing these days, at least since the embarassing "Who's Now" segment made the channel's decline in quality painfully obvious to everyone.

Still, this story is notable in its quintessentially ESPN awfulness.

Why?

1. Another shameless plug for the Arena Football League, which nobody takes seriously but ESPN partially owns, hence it gets covered like a mainstream sport. Actual line from the article: "God Bless the Arena Football League."

2. "Who's Now"-esque celebrity worship.

3. The celebrity being worshipped is Jon Bon Jovi.

That is all.

  1. That's what happens when you let women into sports journalism. No offense, Sara Hatch.

    keep an eye out for the recently instituted "titletown" segments on sportscenter, which will ramp up to mach speed this summer.
