ESPN Turns ESPNU Into ESPN8: The Ocho For One Day Only On August 8, ESPNU will air sports you would never, ever see on TV.

Drawing inspiration from the 2004 film, Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, ESPN has decided to use the idea of the fake ESPN network that aired professional dodgeball within the film.

On August 8, one day only, ESPNU will transform into ESPN8: The Ocho to air the most obscure professional sports you would never see outside of an internet stream such as trampoline dodgeball, ultimate frisbee, and cornhole.

ESPN8: The Ocho’s full schedule (per ESPN Media):

Unfortunately, Dodgeball characters Cotton McKnight and Pepper Brooks will not be providing color commentary. That’s NOT a bold strategy, Cotton.

Are you planning to call in sick to work to watch the 2017 Championship of Bags, because I am.
