ESPN Next Tuesday.

Postby Guttpuppy » Sat Apr 09, 2005 8:44 pm

At 8pm EST,"ESPN Bowling Night." The show will debut April 12 and run for six Tuesdays on ESPN...a superstar-filled bowing tournament in which 16 athletes, including Terrell Owens, Dwyane Wade and Bernard Hopkins compete. I also read that the Bus and Big Ben will be there.

Then, at 9pm after the bowling, a "Superstars" type competition called "Battle of the Gridiron Stars". Two teams of 10 NFL players compete in obstacle course, tug-o-war, dodgeball, home run derby, and other summer camp like events. Hines, Peyton, and Branch headline the AFC, while Culpepper, Eli, and Westbrook headline the NFC.

Should be pretty cool to watch. :-)

Is you avatar a self portrait GP?

I love watching stuff like this. But would much rather it be me in the competition.

Yea they have been advertising the Battle of the Gridiron Stars for a while on ESPN.

I'd hate to play dodgeball against Peyton Manning :-o

I think it'd be interesting to see the Manning brothers in any drill that doesnt involve throwing a ball...

Kinda reminds me of the "battle of the network stars" I used to watch in the 70's.

oh...ummmm.....no, I never watched that. That was stupid... :-B

This sounds neat though. I'll have to make sure to check it out.

I've heard about the gridiron battle and I'm really looking forward to that. I'll have to catch the bowling thing too, because it also sounds pretty cool.

I loved the Superstars competition back in the 80s on Wide World of Sports. Renaldo Nehemiah was the god of the competition. The best was the obstacle course, so I hope they have that on there.

I didn't know about the Bowling Night thing...that is great! It will make an even cooler night of TV watching for me. Monday wrestling, Tuesday bowling/Superstars, Wednesday Mythbusters/poker. ;-D
