ESPN The Mag Cover Commemorates 9/11 By Smugly Patting tWWL On Its Back

Wow, quite the sanctimonious way to memorialize such a solemn anniversary, by unctuously bragging about the stranglehold ESPN has on the sports world, including a capricious attempt at inserting their brand into the observation of national tragedy:

AMERICA PLAYS ON ESPN

Sure, ESPN would probably argue that the header “AMERICA PLAYS ON” is entirely separate from the ESPN logo, but we’re not saps, are we? We know what’s going on here and what they were trying to accomplish with the juxtaposition between the two.

You stay classy, The Worldwide Leader In Sports.
