"Beg,Borrow,and Deal"

It looks like even ESPN is going to get into reality tv now.
This is from zap2it.com:

"The network is also making its first foray into "Amazing Race"-style reality programming with "Beg,Borrow & Deal,"which will premiere in September.Two teams of four people will be dropped off in New York City with no money and no transportation.They then have to make their way to Alcatraz Island in San Francisco, completing a series of sports-related challenges along the way.

"People have asked why we're getting into ,"Antinori says."We really feel like sports is reality programming itself, and this is just a natural extension."

The teams will be able to choose 10 tasks to complete from a list of 40,including driving the Zamboni between periods of a hockey game,catching a pass from an NFL quarterback and singing the national anthem before a pro baseball game.The winners will receive all-expenses-paid trips to four major sports championships."

Sounds alot like Lost.Not too major of a prize.Some of the tasks should be pretty interesting though.I believe it starts September 17th.

The Cubs win the World Series!Cubbies Win!Cubbies Win!

I saw this too.. I just wonder a couple of things

1. Will this be the normal 40 guy you see on an ESPN sports trivia contest? mid 40's guy who is bald, wider than he is tall, and been out of work for the last 3 months.

2. Do they actually get permission to do things like drive a zamboni, or do they have to trick their way into it, cause that could be the funniest part of the whole show

3. How much beer must the drink between legs

4. Can Stewart Scott and Kenny Mayne be the "captain" of each team?

I'd reported on this last Wednesday:


...it does sound like a combinatoin ripoff of NBC's 'LOST' and USA's 'Cannonball Run' At least unlike Lost they will apparently be begging OTHER AMERICANS for money.

I just don't think it's gonna happen.
