ESPN, while still the worldwide leader in sports, is inarguably going through some struggles. Following a massive round of about 150 lay offs due to a slump in television ratings and subscriptions, the network has hit a new low.
During a morning airing of SportsCenter, two hosts played checkers while on air for two whole minutes. We wish we were kidding.
You know ESPN is in trouble when Sportscenter anchors are playing checkers on air.

@espn wonders why you are losing viewers/customers? Maybe because I just watched two SC anchors playing checkers live on national TV
