    Their site is still horrible.
    It's almost bearable if you adblock about half of the elements.

    Yahoo sports is so much better it's disturbing.

    There are some subtle differences, but all in all, the same site.

    I wanna go buy an F-150 now...

    Re: Thoughts on new ESPN Beta?

    It's taking forever to load in Firefox for me. I definitely don't like that. Also, it seems like stuff might be harder to access. It looks like they tried to make it less cluttered, but now it might take more time to access certain parts.

    Just googled him... he sure did. From Hubbard Iowa. That's pretty awesome we're getting some ISU guys out there. Keep up the good work!
