ESPN has announced that their network ESPNU will officially become ESPN 8, the Ocho, and will feature some badass sports that you won’t see on normal sports television.


ESPN Media Zone- “Drawing inspiration from the 2004 hit movie “Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story” featuring Vince Vaughn, Christine Taylor and Ben Stiller, ESPNU will become ESPN8: “The Ocho” on Tuesday, Aug. 8, or more appropriately, 8/8.  For one day only, the faux network will feature a line-up of unconventional sporting events ranging from Disc Golf to Ultimate Trampoline Dodgeball and Firefighters World Challenge playing off the mantra highlighted in the movie: “Bringing you the Finest in Seldom Seen Sports”.




Okay, so maybe this is only for one day. But any fan of White Goodman, Patches O’Houlihan, and Pepper Brooks can finally rejoice together knowing that we’ll all be here on earth at the very time that ESPNU became ESPN 8 for one day.

What a day to be alive.
